Phase Design’s Griffin planter is as substantial as it is stunning. Made from hand-sanded fiberglass with an automotive polyurethane gloss finish the Griffin measures in at 18-inches high and 16 inches in diameter and the Griffin XL at 28-inches high and 20 inches in diameter. Good for the indoors though better suited for the backyard, the planter can also be complemented with the Griffin Stool/Table, which features the same shape but topped with a 1.5-inch solid walnut butcher board lid.
Conceived by Paul White and Dan Morgan, this table is made from a single piece of walnut with a live edge. The legs are attached via a mortise-and-tenon joint technique; a sliver of maple in the dowel is visible on the table surface. The table's inception began with creating a proper table for sushi for two, sitting on the floor in the Japanese style. The dimensions of the table can be custom created, depending on size requirements and available wood pieces.
