Danish Estates: Tom Eltang Smooth Billiard with Bamboo
Product Number: 004-001-17587
Tom's no stranger when it comes to bamboo, often incorporating it into his signature Poker shape — usually in a rather short two-knuckle configuration perfectly tailored to the rhythm and proportions of the somewhat compact form. He's used it in a number of other designs as well, from his take on the Elephant's Foot to a variety of Dublins, Eggs, and Brandies. That being said, bamboo-adorned Billiards are less common. The shape itself here is a straightforward Danish classic, clean of line and supple of curve, with an almost Egg-like plumpness in hand. For the shank extension, Tom used a neat, four-knuckle piece of bamboo, paying close attention to the spacing and rhythm of the knuckles, shank, and stem. The result is a perfectly balanced form, both visually and in mass, and a simply beautiful take on a timeless Danish design.- Andrew Wike
