Portage Cocktail Table

The Portage Cocktail Table is the third of three custom cocktail tables that Kevin designed in summer of 2009. This particular piece ended up as a variation of the Channel Cocktail Table design, except with an added drawer for storage.

Measuring 54" long x 21" wide x 16" oah the Portage Cocktail Table is crafted from a rare sampling of East Indian Laurel, which was sourced from my core stash of rare and vintage woods. The main body was set on a satin black lacquer plinth, with stainless steel offsets carefully inlaid into the top of the pedestal to support a tempered glass top.

Inset into the side of the table is a drawer for storage, with the drawer box itself being crafted out of dovetailed solid maple.

This Portage Cocktail Table is numbered 2009-#003, and is currently on display at the Industrial Storm showroom in Toronto.

A custom variation of the Portage Cocktail Table design is shown above (numbered 2010-#028), custom made as a pedestal base for a dining table. The 3/4" thick glass top was supplied by others.
