A minimalist coffee table produced for a theory elective in wood design. The table features three simplified objects, a large rectangle plane supported by two legs, each oriented in a competing XYZ plane.

One leg is a solid concrete obelisk, cast with a large candle holder dish. The other leg is a single plane of dark walnut which intersects the white oak table along a single line. 
The concrete leg of the coffee table also functions as a candle holder, with a dish cast into the top to hold large candles and protect the tabletop by catching melted wax. The concrete was sealed with beeswax to enhance and texture of the concrete and provide a light warmth.
In addition, small pockets were cast into the concrete, serving as functional handles for ease of moving the 75-pound solid concrete form. These pockets also provide a subtle organic touch to the overall modern and minimalist coffee table.
