H. J. Nick was inspired by a original Arapaho American Indian Tribe canoe built in the 1700’s. This solid timber cocktail table base is built from old growth cedar hundreds of years old. Each piece of timber is hand selected by H. J. Nick himself. Chosen for its unique natural imperfections graining and age among other natural wood attributes.
Each piece is hand joined and cross grained, hand hewn, mortise and tenon joined and doweled to construct a stable table base that will never warp, bow or twist when it re moisturizes at any altitude or climate condition. This table base comes with mar proof levelers and can be leveled to any floor.
This canoe is adorned with genuine cow hides, rabbit pelts and other-non-endangered animal hides and pelts symbolizing a successful hunt.
The genuine gemstone turquoise celebrates a proud people, natural bird feathers are used celebrating nature and flight ( no eagle feathers are ever used). The artist signature adornment is solid copper “concho” is hand made and signed by the artist as original or limited edition and dated. Original works canoes have several genuine hunting arrow heads affixed to the inside of the canoe visible through the glass top. (these genuine arrow heads can be from finds or digs in indian territory and can be hundreds years old.) Each canoe is a collectable functional investment quality work of art that will stand the test of time.

As Shown: Glass Top Hand Chipped And Polished:
Glass Top 70″L X 40″W X 1/2″ Thick the crystal plate glass top is 1/2″ thick and hand chipped and polished to an arrowhead shape. This tedious method of hand chipping and shaping is a risky business even at the hands of our master craftsman.
Sometimes it takes several large pieces of this high quality glass to get one usable top. ( some times we get our profit and some time we don’t ) Each glass top is one of a kind and can never be exactly duplicated.
This is one reason ArtFactory.com can not be duplicated by other U.S. or foreign manufacturers.
