Two minds are greater than one, and when two equally artistic and crafty people come together, it’s bound to result in something truly magnificent. Artist Rivka Wilkins and woodworker Jared Davis collaborated on a shared project, and the result is an excellent example of what can be achieved through artistic projects.
Davis crafted a giant walnut table out of reclaimed wood to allow the artist to go wild with it. Wilkins, who is already established as an artist heavily inspired by the ocean, adorned Davis’ piece of furniture with layers of resin that brought the wood to life as an ocean shore.

The resin layers intertwine beautifully in this furniture set that consists of a coffee table and a bench, creating a realistic feeling of waves splashing against a shore. Wilkins’ art not only breathes life into the classic texture of the wood, but makes it a one-of-a-kind piece that has its own aesthetic and feel.
While the set is mostly covered by resin waves, with blue, translucent and white colors painting a picture of endless waves, the design leaves some space for the original piece to peek through. Davis covered the remaining wooden part with a hard-wax oil to not only give it an nearly matte finish, but protect it from wear and tear.
Both of the furniture pieces are available at Davis’ Etsy store page, with the table’s price racking up to an impressive $2000. The walnut bench is sold for $1,700.
