The great surfing beaches here on the east end of Long Island inspired me for the board pictured above so I like to call this style "Montauk". The table version of this item (below) is the piece the editors of Hampton's Cottages & Gardens chose to feature
I wanted the 12 hand designed surfboard points (with vintage Montauk surfboard patterns) to look like they were sitting right on the sand, so I chose a hard to find quilted maple-- known for it's "chatoyance" (a vibrant, moving pattern on the surface). I trimmed it with exotic South American leopardwood, and wrapped an insert of butter maple in the trim.
