What are the most demanding items you build?
Cocktail tables for the salon. It sounds strange, but building a table is actually the second half of the process. First, you have to design it. Many people want a table that doesn't take up much room in the salon but can open wide for a dinner party. It's challenging because it requires a number of moving parts, yet it needs to be stable and multifunctional. And you have to include a certain amount of stowage inside, so it's definitely not like the high-low tables of the past. Perhaps just as intricate but on a totally different scale is a teak helm pod, which is formed with different pieces of teak, each with its own shape, angle, crown and roll, that is cut on our pair of CNC routers. The Battle Saddle is a three-dimensional unit made from six pieces of teak and no visible fasteners.
