Gear Table by Ryan Matchett

The Gear Table by Ryan Matchett of Ryan Matchett Design House was manufactured for a hotel in Rowanda.

It consists of a mirror polish stainless steel base with adjustable rubber feet to allow for leveling on an uneven surface. Ryan explains that the top was a little trickier. First a hexagon shape was CNC cut from MDF and then segments of Walnut were attached to achieve a round shape. The gear pattern was then CNC cut and a walnut veneer was applied to obtain the overall appearance.

Two of these discs were made and when attached together they were slightly off set to what you see in the pictures. This was all sealed with a reaction lacquer to obtain a satin finish.
