‘Butterfly’ Coffee Table

The great things about working to commission, is that you get all sort of unusual requirements.

This coffee table is designed to display the client’s collection of moths and butterflies. Built in solid oak the main design feature are the laminated curved ‘butterfly wing stretchers.

The glass top keeps the display cabinet sealed, though the sharp eyed will notice I have provided a button on the right hand apron that pushes up the edge of the glass for easier access. It seems poetic irony that in death these pinned moths must be kept with mothballs to stop other critters eating them.
