Hancock dining table - Basic

Project: Hancock dining table - Basic
Location: Casa Cucurujú (Vacation Rental), O Pindo
Date of realization: January 2016
Dimensions: 1950 x 800 x 750 (length, width, height)

This table is an adaptation of the "Hancock dining table" in which all details have been reduced to the maximum in order to achieve a basic and most of all cheap version without loosing the original caracter.
The wood used is Scotts Pine and the finishing is a water based acrylic laquer. A detail worse mentioning are the screws visible on the top outer edges of the T shaped legs. The table had to be, due to logistical reasons, delivered unmounted at its final destination.



Maritime pine

Pinus pinaster is widely planted for timber in its native area, being one of the most important trees in forestry in France, Spain and Portugal. Landes forest in southwest France is the largest man-made maritime pine forest in Europe. Pinus pinaster resin is also a useful source of turpentine and rosin.

In addition to industrial uses, maritime pine is also a popular ornamental tree, often planted in parks and gardens in areas with warm temperate climates. It has become naturalised in parts of southern England, South Africa and Australia.

It is also used as a source of flavonoids, catechins, proanthocyanidins, and phenolic acids. A dietary supplement derived from extracts from Pinus pinaster bark called Pycnogenol is marketed with claims it can treat many conditions; however, according to a 2012 Cochrane review, the evidence is insufficient to support its use for the treatment of any chronic disorder.
