The Golden Lamborghini Table
The “Golden Lamborghini Table” owes its name to the fact that it is coated in 24C GOLD. This makes the table not only unique but most certainly exclusive. With this special project, Jan-Carel is putting a new masterpiece on the market that is not available anywhere else. Once the sculpture is finished, it will be filled with a crystal-clear epoxy resin. By adding the epoxy, the table becomes suitable for its initial purpose. The frame of the table will have a golden color. Whether this will be a shiny brass frame, or a gilded gold frame is up for the client to decide. Anything is possible!
This wooden table is made from certified FSC wood that originates from Indonesia. The dimensions of the tabletop are 200 (length) x 100 (width) x 10 (height) cm. The photos below show the sawmill where the tabletop comes from. The photo on the right shows the wood that was selected for the tabletop, which is the second one from above in the photo.
By using hammer and chisel, a Lamborghini logo more than 8 cm deep was carved into the tabletop. Because the tabletop was carved sufficiently deep, Jan-Carel was able to add extra relief by carving below the tail and horn (of the logo?). To give an impression, the video below shows some of the work so far.
The type of wood, called SUAR, is easy to work with in terms of hardness. The structure of this wood, however, makes it a lot more challenging to process because it is cross-stranded. This means that the direction of the nerve – which equals the direction one needs to carve – can shift during the process. Adapting to these directional changes can be very difficult, if not impossible. The wood experts amongst us must be familiar with this issue.
Nevertheless, Jan-Carel finds it pleasant to work with, and that can be seen in the result. Because once you know the wood, you are able to handle it. You only need to know how…. but that goes for everything of course.
