Woodworker and designer David Ball, the designer behind Jacob May, is based in Oakland, California; he specializes in producing classic American furniture that is simple, elegant, and built to last. We’ve admired his knife racks for Quitokeeto before, and now we’re obsessed with his Nomad table. Go to Jacob May for ordering information; the tables are also available through Heath Ceramics.
