Sydney-based maker Sebastian Wood uses simple forms to reveal the natural beauty of the timber he works with. This table expresses his approach – the tabletop ‘floats’ within the table legs which were cut from a straight-grained board.

Sebastian works for a small company specialising in bespoke furniture and cabinetry and teaches at Heartwood Creative Woodworking. His approach is to produce simple, elegant, and honest pieces, that showcase the natural beauty of the timbers he uses.
