Last summer we had a nightmare situation with a Los Angeles nightlife owner, David Judaken (owner of Opera, Crimson, My House, and East). He commissioned us to build multiple pieces for two of his projects and then tried to systematically dispute every single project with American Express costing us tens of thousands of dollars in time and materials on pieces that were built for him but were never paid for. Apparently, it is the way he operates as we were later told by several sources that he was notorious in LA for putting people out of business by not paying for his large orders.
This piece is being transformed into new incarnation. Aaron is planing the tops level to bring out the beautiful grain of seemingly unsightly railroad ties of which the table was built of. More photos to come.
