Discommon adds yet another installment to its Automotive Icon Table Series with the Aston Martin Valkyrie “Wake” table. The Valkyrie marks the eighth table in the series, joining other legendary cars such as the Ferrari F40, Ford GT, and Lamborghini Miura. The whole series thus far is an impressive display of what Discommon can do with a few blocks of aluminum and a CNC machine, but the Valkyrie takes the run of custom tables in a different direction, entirely.
Where the other coffee tables were fully machined aluminum, the Valkyrie is made from a four-inch-thick block of solid American walnut then finished in a Rubio Monocoat satin and fitted with machined aerospace-grade aluminum legs. If that’s not impressive enough given the level of detail on the replica car in the center of the table, the press release from Discommon says “the painstaking project requires 30 hours of 3-D CAD modeling, 30 hours of prepping and bonding the wooden block, 27 hours of CNC machining and three days of sanding and finishing.”
And unlike the other Automotive Icon Tables, it wasn’t a customer who commissioned the work, Discommon founder Neil Ferrier simply said, “we have to do it.” But, similar to the other tables, the Valkyrie will be a limited release, so if you want one, you’ll have to act fast. You’ll also have to be willing to part with $17,000. It’ll pair nicely with a set of Discommon lowball whiskey tumblers, just make sure you get into the habit of using coasters.
