Four razor-sharp-looking axes slice through a solid sheet of wood to form the legs of this highly unusual table inspired by the Brothers Grimm tale, Little Red Riding Hood. The ‘Woodsman Axe Table’ by Duffy London certainly makes a strong (and somewhat frightening) statement that would make the Big Bad Wolf think twice about messing with you.
Reclaimed axes with solid hickory handles were imported from the United States and polished to a mirror finish to make them even more eye-catching as the corner pieces on the table. Hopefully those axes aren’t actually as sharp as they appear.
Conceived as a one-off display piece, the Woodsman Axe Table is now available through the designers’ website for £895.00 with walnut, light oak and ash surface options.
