Racine Carree is French for Square Root making the English name the Square Root Table. By either name, the table is a beautiful melding of a found oak stump, a unique bespoke design by Thomas de Lussac and traditional craftsmanship via the dove tailing that joins the tabletop and single leg with the section of tree trunk itself.
The oak stump was found in the Perch region of northwestern France and Perchebois craftsmen E. Chartrain, Bouhours and Gautier constructed this tree inspired furniture.
It took over 8 months to complete the table.
The original stump was extracted from the ground via a crane and the first cuts top and bottom where made with a chainsaw.
As with most stumps, the meandering, organic form was rough and it took a lot of sanding before the assemblage could begin.
