We just got a table very similar. We live in Muscle Shoals, AL. There is a guy here that makes them and they are fabulous. His name is Robin Wade. My email is My name is Lisa Alexander. I can send you pics if you would like. He just made several pieces of furniture for the new american home in Orlando-(show house by Phil Kean). You can check out that web site too for pics.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cliff May introduced a continuous, motorized skylight into the fourth home he built for himself. The skylight, which runs the full length of the roof ridge, provides generous light to the interior spaces and, when open, brings the night sky and stars inside. Seems to me that children raised in such a house would naturally become astrophysicists.
Samantha Schoech added this to The Ins and Outs of Northern California Style
Cliff May was a father of the look. Skylights, natural lines, and lots and lots of light are signatures of his style.

Cliff May's innovative ranch home designs give him a place of honor in the residential hall of fame. He introduced comfort and convenience into postwar '50s homes, from motorized skylights and bathroom vanity cabinets to single-lever faucets and whole-house intercoms. He incorporated features of large, custom ranches into more modest and affordable ranch homes, and gave them a sense of spaciousness as well as strong connections between inside and outside. May's work incorporated environmental design before it was recognized as such, says Dan Gregory, author of Cliff May and the Modern Ranch House. Careful consideration of sun angles, wind directions, vegetation and more went into his designs — concepts that many now seem to be just revisiting. May's pioneering designs are celebrated in a new exhibit, Carefree California: Cliff May and the Romance of the Ranch House, at the University of California, Santa Barbara, through June 17, 2012. Add to ideabook by Catherine Opie by Catherine Opie Cliff May introduced a continuous, motorized skylight into the fourth home he built for himself. The skylight, which runs the full length of the roof ridge, provides generous light to the interior spaces and, when open, brings the night sky and stars inside. Seems to me that children raised in such a house would naturally become astrophysicists.
