The Design and Manufacturing Process of Skram?s Altai Side Table

Skram takes us behind the scenes in the design process to see how the beautiful Altai Side Table comes to light.

Skram is a Burlington, North Carolina based furniture company founded by A. Jacob Marks that focuses on sustainable methods of manufacturing. Their goal is to design and produce quality, handcrafted pieces that can be handed down from generation to generation and it’s clear when you take a look at what goes into making the Altai Side Table. For this month’s Deconstruction, Skram takes us behind the scenes to see how this beautiful table comes to light. Take a look.
Altai is a family of seating and tables that we launched in 2015. The defining characteristic of this body of work is what we call the leg element (others have said that they look like leg warmers or rifle barrels or any number of other things), which we manifest with a complex computer-driven carving process and a great deal of hand work.
Altai was our first collection that embraced applied ornament (in the form of the leg element) ? something not structurally necessary ? which was a big deal for a devoted minimalist. But the visual weight created by the leg element was aesthetically necessary and, we felt, really beautiful, tactile, and strong.

Sketches, renderings, and concept development: This is the first reference in my sketchbook for the forms that became Altai. After this stage, the design process goes directly to the computer, where we work out details, produce 3D models, and do renderings. Eventually we will export from our modeling program to our CAM software, which is what is used to program our router. But still, the sketchbook is essential. It all begins with a line on a white page.
Rough Milling: Timber Selection: Fabrication begins with work orders being pulled and grouped as determined by our product schedule. In this case, we are following the fabrication of a few sets of Altai Side Tables and several Altai Console Tables. In these images the 3? thick White Ash and Walnut rough sawn timber that will make up the table tops are being selected and sorted. Our timber comes from Appalachian forests within a few hundred miles of our facility.

Rough Milling: Face Joint and Plane: After material is selected, we cut it to a rough length in order to ease handling and to get the best yield and presentation. Then we create a flat surface on one face of the timber using the jointer and create a parallel surface using the planer.

Rough Milling: Straightline: After planing, the parts are moved to the SLR saw for a process called ?straightlining?. This 70 year old machine rips perfect edges on the material, to prepare the boards for gluing into tops.

Rough Milling: Glue-Up: Now we assemble the blanks for the tops. We use a non-toxic, rigid and permenent adhesive for this. The tops go into a large panel clamp. They will cure and stabilize for at least 24 hours before further processing.

Rough Milling: Sanding: After curing, the tops have been re...
