    How are The Morro Tables constructed?

    Each Morro Table is expertly handcrafted from solid ash wood—domestically sourced from sustainable forests in the eastern United States—and kiln-dried to prevent warping and splitting over time. From raw materials to tenon joinery to your choice of custom finish, The Morro Tables are crafted to bring out the inherent character and natural beauty of their solid ash wood frame and designed to age over time to masterful perfection.

    What are the differences in size and how should I use each table?

    The Morro Tables seamlessly nest as a set for a sculptural centerpiece or can stand alone to fit your unique space. Offered in three distinct sizes, the versatility of the Morro Set caters to a wide variety of arrangements. The Small Morro Table is the tallest at 18.75” and functions beautifully as an end table, while the largest table is perfectly designed as a low coffee table with a height of 14.75”. Nest them in pairs or as a set of three for a sculptural centerpiece to the room, or style them individually for multi-purpose function.

    What is the durability of ash wood and how is it sourced?

    Each Morro Table is expertly handcrafted using solid ash, a robust hardwood with a beautiful depth and texture in its grain. Our artisan partners hand select each material for its beauty and unique character, giving your piece a natural, one-of-a-kind variation. 

    Our ash wood is domestically sourced from sustainable forests in the eastern United States. We are proud to build our pieces from ash that is harvested in accordance with traditional and civil rights. We do not source from forests that are being converted to non-forest use or where genetically modified trees are planted.

    How are the tables finished?

    The Morro Tables are completed with your choice of six hues specially finished to highlight the natural grain and character of the wood, with an added layer of protection against water stains and ring marks. To extend the life of your natural wood piece, we recommend to always use a beverage coaster; otherwise, enjoy the added character and aging process that happens over time.

    Can I order wood finish samples?

    Wood finish samples for The Morro Tables are available for order here. Please note, variation in grain and texture is to be expected between your wood sample and final piece, given the natural materials used. We’ll be happy to refund your swatch purchase less 10% for handling if returned within 30 days of the original ship date.

    Quality Pieces

    We love our Morro table and we ended up needing the larger size. Customer service was so easy to work with and we had a great experience. Will purchase again

    Very good table — ‘that’s a Steal’

    If you want a very high end real solid wood coffee table that’s made in America just buy the large coffee table in this nesting set. It’s sub 1500 bucks which is an absolute steal as we go this for a ski home in Vermont and a local wood worker friend remarked at how nice the table was and said ‘that’s a steal’ when we told him the price. Very happy.

    coffee table is lovely

    I love everything about this coffee table but I will say I may not have ordered had I known it takes 11 weeks to receive a coffee table. Yikes! but the table is lovely and we will enjoy is forever.

    Literally so perfect

    I received my medium Morro Table in the Driftwood finish a few weeks ago and have to say it’s one of my favorite pieces in my apartment. It’s so minimal and yet so stunning. I’m currently using it as a side table to my Dune and I love how much space I have to style while it still being very functional. When I am in a larger apartment, my vision is to use this as a bedside table! The craftsmanship and quality are so apparent in this piece and I couldn’t be happier with it.

    Stunning. Sturdy. Practical.

    We have all three sizes of the Morro tables nested together as our coffee table in our living room. They are more stunning in person than they are in the promo photos. The minimal yet uniqueness of the design makes exactly the kind of understated statement we were hoping for. They are also solid and sturdy—I am not worried about them holding up over the long haul. Our living room has two sections across from each other and having the three in the living room allows us to pull them apart and bring different pieces closer to guests for easier access to a place to put down a drink or serve a snack. No one has to get up to get popcorn, there’s a table within arm’s length of everyone. We couldn’t be happier.


    Morro Castle — New Jersey Maritime Museum

    The following was written by Gretchen Coyle, Beach Haven resident and docent of the Museum of NJ Maritime History.

    In 2003 my mother died at the age of 100. While close-mouthed and proper to the extreme most of her life, she told me in her last decade that she saw the “Morro Castle” on fire from the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Could this be true?

    Nothing could have been more terrifying than being a passenger or crew member aboard the “Morro Castle” in the early morning hours of September 7, 1934 when fire erupted in two places on the 508’ long, 11,250 gross tons of elegant ship. Just hours after Captain Robert Willmott had been found dead in his stateroom of strange circumstances. “Acute indigestion” according to the ship’s doctor Dr. DeWitt Van Zile.

    Adding to the disaster was the fact that the ship was facing into the wind – a Northeasterly 30 mph blow – with a number of officers and crew bordering on incompetent. Starting in the First Class Writing Room, the midship flames were fanned by the wind and a temporary ship’s captain who froze under the tragedy, never leaving the bridge to assess the damage. Probably the “Morro Castle” was doomed at the first sign of smoke.

    During the Great Depression it was a rare luxury for people to afford a cruise on luxury liners, yet over 72,000 people took cruises in 1934. Built in 1929 – 1930 at the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company in Virginia, the “Morro Castle” and her sister ship “Oriente” were part of a congressional bill that loaned $250 million to American ship builders. Taking advantage of such an opportunity was the Ward Line, a mail and cargo line whose main route was back and forth to Cuba.

    Costing $5 million, the “Morro Castle” was named after the fortress and lighthouse in Havana. For four years the ship made its way back and forth from Cuba usually half to completely full of passengers. While it was routinely maintained, and glossed over, the “Morro Castle” had never been pulled.

    Paint covered everything (a detail that would only compound the tragedy), and drills and safety instructions were largely ignored. The crew changed hands routinely. Most were paid less that the government Civilian Conservation Corps workers, surly and inefficient. With a government contract to deliver mail and other goods between the U.S. and Cuba, punctuality was first and foremost in the Ward Line officials’ minds.

    “The ship’s Art Deco inspired profile, seen daily in advertisements of the New York papers, attracted passengers from a variety of social tiers … the Ward Line knew its clientele and catered to them shamelessly,” wrote Brian Hicks in his 2006 book When the Dancing Stopped: The Real Story of the ‘Morro Castle” Disaster and Its Deadly Wake. “(The) crew was divided into two camps: those simply happy to have a job and others outraged by the way the Ward Line treated them.

    Unhappiness and major grievances cast a pall on the last few months of the ship’s existence. Agitators, Communists, discontents, and maybe even murderers, were part of the general mix. George Alagna was a radio operator who vocally expressed opposition over how most of the crew was treated to all who would listen. His fellow radio operator George Rogers turned out to be even more mysterious and sinister. Captain Willmott had major problems with his officers as well as the crew.

    With all of the above turmoil in mind, hindsight shows the “Morro Castle” a disaster waiting to happen. According to William Warms, Chief Officer who took over the ship after the undetermined death of the captain, Captain Willmott told him the day of the fire, “I’m afraid something is going to happen tonight, I can feel it.”

    Moving ten miles off the coast of Delaware Bay “The ship looked like a photograph from a travel agent’s brochure come to life … an outpost of paradise, an oasis at sea,” Brian Hicks visualized. Dodging both the northeaster and a hurricane coming up the coast, the officers of the “Morro Castle” just wanted to get inside the safety of Sandy Hook, the entrance to New York Harbor by early the next morning.

    A last night fancy ball was cancelled after Captain Willmott’s demise. Passengers and crew became on edge. At 3:00am a fire erupted in a closet off from the Writing Room. Almost simultaneously another erupted elsewhere. Flames quickly engulfed the ship. A small number of the crew tried to put out the fire, while at the same time telling two young ladies who wanted to sound the alarm to be quiet lest they wake other passengers up.

    Both officers and crew were paralyzed with fear and indecision, the result being a fire that quickly engulfed the ship. No order was given to stop or turn the “Morro Castle” around. Consequently, the blaze burned everything back through the stern in quick order. Although only a few fire hydrants were used, water pressure became extremely low.

    In flames the ship proceeded out of control up the coast a few miles off shore. Panic ensued among passengers and crew. Many of the crew looked out for themselves as they dropped lifeboats and filled them. They did not direct terrified passengers who had received no life vest and lifeboat drills at sea. Although the ship had more than enough lifeboats – a rule enacted after the “Titanic” disaster – they were not filled. Some of the lifeboats were literally painted in place and could not be lowered.

    More afraid of being burned to death than being in the water, many people jumped into the Atlantic Ocean. No one was told that cork life preservers needed to be held upon descent or they could cause injury such as broken necks or unconsciousness. No doubt this added to the fatalities.

    The ornate wooden interior on the ship just added to an out of control raging fire. Cleaning fluid exploded, as did the Lyle Gun stored over the Writing Room, designed to attach its line to another ship to start evacuation. A SOS was oddly enough first heard by radio station WCS in Tuckerton, NJ. After a questionable sequence of events and time enacted by the radio operators, the word was spread.

    Ships and local boats from the coastal Asbury Park area headed to the scene, rescuing a number of people in the water. Others had died from their fall, being crushed by the ship’s propellers, or drowned during a night of high seas and bad weather.

    The final tally was disastrous: six out of twelve lifeboats only were lowered, a total of 137 people died. Investigations took place after the ship had beached itself off the oceanfront Convention Hall at the summer resort of Asbury Park. Lawyers, passengers, crew, the FBI under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover and his brother, and the Ward Line all conducted inquiries into the tragedy. Testimony was conflicted and self-serving in cases.

    The “Morro Caste” became an attraction seen by thousands over the ensuing months – first a smoldering hull, later a charred remains. Summer businesses extended their season well into the fall, making for the best season they had in years. Souvenirs were sold; hotels, boarding houses and restaurants did a brisk business.

    Brian Hicks puts together now unclassified testimony and numerous information on radio operator George Rogers, who at first emerged as the hero of the “Morro Castle.” Now revealed as a psychopath, liar, and murderer, Rogers is clearly shown for what he was – not the dependable radio operator who stayed by his post trying to raise a signal from another ship. He was a pyromaniac who, through his extraordinary knowledge of explosives and radio devices, managed to take down a large liner.

    While hindsight draws many conclusions, one young seventeen year old on board as the third purser spent years telling groups of people that not all the crew was negligent. Some helped passengers and their fellow crew members. Tom Torresson testified, “When I first saw the beautiful ‘Morro Castle’ I fell in love with it. ” He went on to graduate from Norte Dame, the Army Air Corps, and became a flight instructor.

    According to Hicks book, Torresson “had indefatigable energy … For most of his life he kept alive the notion of a grand cruise ship in its final glory days.” “It’s all baloney,” Hicks quotes Torresson as saying after finding out the rumor for the high death toll was largely due to the crew. Tom Torresson died in 2005 at the age of eighty-nine, close to the seventy-first anniversary of the disaster.

    The “Morro Castle” remained on the beach off Asbury Park for a few months in the fall of 1934. It was then towed to Baltimore, taken apart, and sold as scrap.

    Neither the circumstances of Captain Robert Willmott’s death nor the actual cause of the sinking of the “Morro Castle” have ever been officially determined.

    To answer the question of whether my mother saw this ship burning from the Atlantic City Boardwalk: After a night of partying might she have seen a red glow in the distance and not known what it was? Or maybe she meant she saw the hull of the “Morro Castle” from the boardwalk in Asbury Park?

    Could she have made up the whole thing? I will never know.

    Morro Rock in the USA — foggy bay and ghostly cypresses of California

    Near the small port town of Morro Bay in Southern California, on the shore of the bay of the same name, there is a beautiful volcanic rock Morro Rock (Morro Rock), resembling a rounded pyramid. Its graceful shape attracts many travelers who are ready to give a few minutes of their lives to a rock in the ocean and a hill on land opposite. And we also decided to include this place in our itinerary along the US West Coast, rich in fabulous and amazing landscapes.

    Morro Rock on the California coast USA

    What kind of rock is this, Morro Rock, to which people go? This is a volcanic cone, vent, or neck, is the remains of volcanic lava, tuff and other material. Necks are usually irregular or pole-shaped, like the famous Devil’s Tower in Wyoming. And Morro Rock came out in a very nice shape and undoubtedly attracts many tourists.

    There are quite a lot of such necks along the US coast (there are eight more near Morro), they are scattered along the coastal strip of California, Oregon and Washington. But not everyone has beautiful outlines. Nevertheless, they look very impressive from the shore.


    Morro Rock State Park . To enter the park, you must have an annual pass from those that give access to various parks throughout the state. These are California Explorer, Golden Poppy, Tahoe Regional, Historian Passport and so on. These annual subscriptions range from $50 to $175. The cheapest of them is SNO Park Season, the annual subscription here costs $25, and for visiting one day you have to pay $5. All are ordered from the California State Parks Store. But the Annual Pass to all US national parks is not valid here.

    Parking and beach next to Morro Rock

    But you don’t have to pay to look at the rock from the outside. So if your goal is just to look and take a couple of shots, and not spend the whole day near it or surf, you don’t have to worry about tickets.

    Morro Bay is considered one of the best surfing spots (like Surfrider Beach in Malibu and the beginners’ beach in Santa Cruz)

    As for the history of Morro Rock, it begins in ancient times, when volcanoes were seething here and created the American landscape, namely 23 million years ago. If we do not consider history in such huge measures, then the Chumash Indians were the first here, then the ubiquitous Spaniards.

    Morro Rock is also very popular for boat trips, as in Monterey

    Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the one who discovered California for Europeans and walked along Point Reyes, and sailed here first in 1542. It seemed to him that the rock resembled a turban of the Moors, so he called this place. He always seemed to be on something.

    Morro Rock — either just a rock, or a turban

    And then came a not so romantic era in the history of Morro Rock. For a hundred years, her wealth was used to build defensive structures. Now the whole city, built here at the end of the 19th century, lives on tourism, like Carmel in California and Savannah in Georgia.

    Facts about Morro Rock

    • Morro Rock is 175 meters high.
    • Peregrine falcons nest on its top.
    • The rock can be approached as it is connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land.
    • Despite the fact that you can walk next to the rock, climbing it is strictly prohibited!

    How to get to Morro Rock

    Morro Rock is located on the Pacific coast of the United States near the town of Morro Bay. And he stands on the shores of Morro Bay and right on the first highway on the way from Los Angeles to San Francisco. It will be hard to miss. The main thing is not to go to the city itself, but follow the sign for Morro Bay State Park. Nearby there is an RV park where you can spend the night if you are in a camper.

    We have traveled several times in California on our own. Cars were rented immediately after arrival at the airport in Los Angeles (detailed article). Each time we booked in advance, about a month and a half before the trip. Car classes and prices were compared here →

    Another Morro Rock map. The trail to Black Hill is marked with a yellow marker

    And if you are interested in the Chumash culture, you can also look at the sacred Kachuma Lake and the Chumash Cave with colorful petroglyphs. How to get to Chumach Painted Cave State Park? Immediately after Santa Barbara, you need to turn onto Route 154, towards the town of Solvang, and drive about 12 miles. The entrance to the cave is paid. And further along the highway, after another 9miles will be Cachuma Lake. We only visited the lake, and it is very picturesque there. Yellow sandy earth and pine trees beautifully frame the lake, which seems like a miracle in these parts.

    Now it’s time for us to go to the shore and look at the Morro Rock.

    Early morning on Morro Bay

    We arrived at Morro Rock early in the morning and found the ghostly mood of the night, which did not have time to disappear. And it was on a changeable and foggy morning that they saw a hill that was sacred to the Chumash Indians, and a rock that watches over everything that happens on earth. Morro is Spanish for rock. Although the Portuguese discoverer had more in mind the headdress of the Moors. But the consonant words — morro and moor — are now in the same row.

    Morro Bay

    The gray cypresses that grow on Morro Beach really look like crouching ghosts, their branches twist so funny. Therefore, despite the dullness, the autumn morning actually turned out to be quite suitable for viewing the shrine of the Indians.

    Chumash legend

    The Chumash Indians believe that Morro Rock was the place where a falcon and a raven destroyed the great two-headed serpent. The legendary event was so important that the Indians held an annual ceremony to celebrate the victory of the heavenly creatures. The rock and the land have been saved so that now we can still come and admire the sparse but still amazingly beautiful Morro rock and its sister on land.

    Chumash and peregrine falcon

    Climbing the sacred hill

    Morro Rock actually has two hills: Black Hill and Eagle Rock. A trail leads to the Black hill lookout on Black Hill. This trail is 4.8 km long and can be completed in 1 hour.

    Hidden behind a beautiful cypress is a golf course in Morro Rock State Park

    And the sun came out for a second over the golf course and you can see the hulk of Black Hill, where the Black hill lookout trail leads

    But if you don’t have time, as we did, you can try climbing Eagle Hill. It is quite simple, the walk will take half an hour, no more. Eagle Rock is much closer to the coast and, as they said, it was he who was considered sacred by the Chumash Indians. The start of the trail is next to the museum. Along the way, you can see all the diversity of wildlife that the Chumash used in their economy.

    But let’s go upstairs and see what you can see from the hill.

    That’s where we need to go, this is the top of Eagle rock, hiding behind cypresses

    And here we start the path — from the very shore we go up the steps from the roots of the cypress to the museum, and then up the hill

    The path winds around the rock

    And here we are already at the top, and it is hidden only by a sprawling pale giant

    And what can be seen on the left? Cove and marina for boats and yachts

    You can see the city behind the island

    And in the distance you can see Morro Rock!

    After an amazing morning, we continued along the Pacific coast and stopped to see the fur seals in San Simeon.

    Our second visit to the Morro rock

    I would add that several years have passed since our acquaintance with the Morro rock. During this time, we have already traveled to the West Coast of the United States several times and traveled through the national parks of California at different times of the year. In the autumn we visited Sequoia and Yosemite, and in the spring we again visited Death Valley, Redwood Park and Lake Tahoe. There were also some returns to 17-Mile Drive.

    And here we are again, halfway from San Francisco to Los Angeles, found ourselves in the town of Morro Bay, off the coast of which stands the incredible Morro Rock. This giant dominates the landscape and is an eye-catcher.

    Going down to the bay

    I remember five years ago I could not understand how such a rock ended up on the very coast of California. And Morro Rock is really close. In addition, you can come to the rock by car, since the volcanic miracle, as it were, rests on a small island with a spit that connects Morro Bay beach and Morro Rock.

    Stopped to look at Morro Rock from afar again

    We found ourselves next to the Avalon rescue submarine

    So we did not fail to take a closer look at Morro Rock and came to the peninsula. There is a fairly large parking lot, as well as a spot for surfers. I won’t say that Morro Rock is similar in its structure and structure to the Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, but the atmosphere around it definitely evokes something of the same mystical. In addition, it also rises lonely above the landscape.

    For the Cachuma Indians, Morro Rock was a holy place. And they can be understood. On the shore, you can arrange a retreat and meditate with a view of Morro Rock.

    By the way, this place, like Point Lobos Park, is very foggy and cloudy.
