72" Diameter Dining Table From Reclaimed Boxcar Planks
The customer was seeking an heirloom dining table with great character. Several pictures were shared to select a design that resulted in a metal base with salvaged boxcar floor planks for the top.
The base was constructed from steel flat bar that feature decorative hammered edges. A textured, copper-toned powder coat was applied for the finish.
The top was made from maple floor planks salvaged from railcars built in the 1920's and 30's. Each plank bore the scars of decades of use and abuse carrying freight across our great country.
The planks were assembled to make a dodecagon (12 sided) top that was then surrounded by a walnut ring. The final result was a 72" round top topped off by an independent 32" diameter lazy susan.
Mohawk brand Statesman Oak stain and satin catalyzed lacquer were applied for the final finish.
