Product Description

Boom! Modern table in Spruce and Mahogany

Story: Highway bridges on the ’20’ in Quebec gave fine furniture maker Jacques Breau the visual form for this modern table. The subtle curves and angles lend themselves well both structurally and aesthetically to the supporting role of the base.

The table top and shelf are made from spruce wood that was reclaimed from the remains of a lumber boom that washed up on the beaches in the Vancouver area, as many do each year. This modern table is available to order in cherry, walnut and mahogany for the base; and fir and maple may be used for the top.

Materials: Spruce and Mahogany

Dimensions: 16.5” H x 50”L x  22” W

* Other combinations of materials can be used to build this modern table, but please note that the price may differ.

Jacques Breau

Jacques Breau has been around woodworking and craft since he was a child. Woodworking runs in the Breau family, starting from his great-grandfather who passed down his love of wood to many family members throughout the generations. Jacques’ mother, an exacting seamstress, has imparted her approach to craft to him. This combination of material and approach guides Jacques along. After completing an undergraduate degree at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, Jacques embarked on his journey as a craftsman. After reading James Krenov’s book, “A Cabinetmaker’s Notebook”, it became clear that his passion was leading him to woodworking. He has since studied at the Silva Bay Shipyard School (2003), and at the Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking (2006-2007), both located on the Strait of Georgia, in British Columbia. Since graduating from the Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking, Jacques has been a member of the Guest Faculty at that institution. Jacques gets inspirations for his work from bridges, water towers, seashells, difficult joinery, and the flowing lines of turn of the century furniture. These inspirations are juxtaposed with constantly striving to strip designs down to the essentials. Tools are a very important aspect of Jacques’ craft practice. His machines have been collected and lovingly restored to working order. They date as far back as 1915, and are all from quality manufactures in North America and Europe. The hand tools in Jacques’ collection are all of high quality, and are well maintained. Some of these tools have been shop built, while others have been accumulated over the years. His hand tool collection includes tools from Japan, England, the United States, Germany, Canada, as well as shop made tools.
