Eau de Nil

Originally uploaded by Nieve44/La Luz
Water of the Nile was the inspiration for the this beautiful table created by Dan Axton. The flooring was salvaged and the shower door was recycled. This was the first creation by Dan and he plans to design additional tables to be sold, and yes he is taking requests. As you can see this is a one of a kind, unique design. The wood was salvaged by hand, piece by piece from an old farm house in an East Houston neighborhood now known as Pecan Park. This wood is old "Heart Pine", which can no longer be found naturally unless salvaged or bought (expensive). The Golden Mean/Ratio of 61.8% was measured precisely in the height and width with exact measurements of 1.68%. Additional photos can be found here. Btw, Happy Birthday to my mom!
