The top is constructed from a reclaimed stainless steel stair stringer, 2" thick black walnut, and live edge white oak -- supported by a steel frame (this piece weighs several hundred pounds). The legs are made from rips of seven different species of wood encased in brushed steel. I made this piece, which I funded myself, immediately after I made Pingtuated Equilibripong. It is the last piece that I am able to fund -- I'm hanging on by a thread financially. Since it's made from a stringer, I named it [Hanging on] "By a String".
