Golden Lamborghini table

After carving the Lamborghini emblem by hand it was first painted in the original Lamborghini colors, and coated with 24 carat gold leaf.

Next the entire table was covered and sealed using a crystal-clear epoxy cast resin. By adding the epoxy, the table becomes suitable for its initial purpose.

The frame of the table has a black matte finish and was chosen by the client that has purschased this unique and exclusive item.

Suar wood, also known as Albizia saman or monkey pod wood, is highly regarded for its unique characteristics, making it special in various applications.

Suar wood’s impressive size, unique grain patterns, warm color tones, sustainability, durability, natural live edge, suitability for carving, and low maintenance make it a special and sought-after material for a variety of applications, particularly in the creation of furniture and decorative items.

Super Suar

Suar wood’s impressive size, unique grain patterns, warm color tones, sustainability, durability, natural live edge, suitability for carving, and low maintenance make it a special and sought-after material for a variety of applications, particularly in the creation of furniture and decorative items.

Uniquely hand crafted

By using hammer and chisel, a Lamborghini logo more than 8 cm deep was carved into the tabletop. Because the tabletop was carved sufficiently deep, Jan-Carel was able to add extra relief by carving below the tail and horn of the ‘Lamborghini Bull’. To give an impression, the video below shows some of the work so far.

Suar wood is easy to work with in terms of hardness. The structure of this wood, however, makes it a lot more challenging to process because it is cross-stranded. This means that the direction of the nerve – which equals the direction one needs to carve – can shift during the process. Adapting to these directional changes can be very difficult, if not impossible. The wood experts amongst us must be familiar with this issue.
