“Each tree not only has a different size and shape, but color and character, and each board from each tree has a distinctly different personality.”

The Nakashima Foundation for Peace (more) aims to build Sacred Peace Tables for each continent of the world and to preserve both the legacy of George Nakashima, a leading innovator of 20th century furniture design, and the National Historic Landmark designated Nakashima Property in New Hope, Pa., for future generations.
