Replica Alden B. Dow Coffee Table (Duffy Res. 1949)




Alden B. Dow designed this table for the George Duffy Residence in 1949.  These replicas have been made by a local wood craftsman, Kevin Kram.

The wood Alden Dow chose most often was “fine vertical grain” Douglas Fir.  It is a soft wood with an incredible even grain so to increase the durability multiple layers of (semi-gloss) Polyurethane have been applied to the finished product.  The top is finished with a high gloss finish which adds additional durability because it dries harder than semi-gloss.
