Solid Wood Table That Redefines Custom Furniture

Kristin Kerr

Nick Zammeti is a Youtuber that works with wood to create incredibly imaginative works of craftsmanship which take him several months to create. This pencil river solid wood table is particularly unique because of its concept — thousands of colorful pencils that float down its middle and support the entire structure.

Zammeti’s vlogging career focuses on woodwork. His videos typically show the process of making his fascinating woodwork pieces. Zammeti has made several pieces like his famous Ukulele, and a metal and resin table.

River tables are incredibly bold, modern works that pair live-edge slabs of solid wood with the ingenuity of its artisan. Typically, a river table will have a faux river run right through it. These faux rivers are commonly designed with a water hue of epoxy, giving it a river-like appearance, hence the name. The best part, they can come in any form — bohemian, edgy, eclectic, modern, transitional, or even industrial.

A master craftsman undertakes the task of turning the eye-catching slabs into a unique design. By combining larger and smaller pieces of wood, a master artisan can easily determine the creative direction of his solid wood table.

Creating a solid wood table with a pencil river

Recently though, several artisans have begun to explore the concepts of more eccentric elements embedded in the faux rivers — ingenuity beyond dynamic hues blended with the smooth water-colored epoxy resin.

In the video, Zammeti starts by trimming down and filing the slabs of wood he chooses for the pencil river table. Next, he fills the ensuing gap with thousands of colored pencils, which he sets with epoxy resin.

Then he goes on to create molds for the legs of the pencil river table — he intends to fill the molds with more colorful pencils. Once the molds are appropriately set with resin — a lot of it too — he cuts off the materials holding it. Then he files, measures, cuts, files, measures… you get the idea.

And then abracadabra, you have a beautiful too-large coffee table filled with thousands of colorful pencils flowing down its middle and legs too!

Now that you’ve read through, you might be tempted to think, “Oh, that’s easy, let me try that at home.” Well…

Unless you have a lot of expertise, a bunch of tools — and obviously, tons of resin and colored pencils, we really would advise against it.

But you can keep busy by watching Nick Zammeti make his river table — with thousands of pencils floating on it. Check out the video below.
