The name of this table comes from the rabbet (or rebate) which is the featured detail on this piece. The rabbet is a recess or groove cut into the edge of a piece of machinable material, usually wood. This piece was designed by interior designer Rosemary Sleigh, a Vancouver B.C. based designer I've had the pleasure of working with on many projects over the years. Made from solid Black Walnut and finished with Oil/Wax.
