Strangler Fig Bar Top/Bistro Table

Strangler Fig Bar Top/Bistro Table

SKU: IS1908115

This unusual, and one-of-a-kind, table is made from the Strangler fig tree. These unique trees start as small springs and climb towards the rain forest canopy by wrapping themselves around larger trees. Eventually, they kill their hosts and the hosts rot away, leaving this cylindrical wooden web. I once stumbled across a very large one in Sulawesi, Indonesia and climbed probably 75' up it. Once I put snakes out of my mind, it was an amazing experience...  The table base averages a diameter of 26", and is very stable with a 5/8" thick x 30" diameter glass top.
