Re-Purposed Window Top Coffee Table
This coffee table is made from a salvaged metal casement window frame and wood reclaimed from a cabin outside of the Central City in the Colorado mountains. The wood has been cleaned up but still has a lot of the character that it picked up from weathering for many years. The window still has its original brass hardware that now functions as a handle to open up the table top. To open the top does take a good pull as the metal window and glass are heavy, but once it is opened most of the way it will stay in place. The table is great for storage or display, with about 10" of room between the wood base and glass top.
The paint has been mostly striped from the metal window frame and then it was clear coated to protect the raw metal. The wood has been sealed with PolyWhey, a water based polyurethane made from cheese making by-products.
The dimensions of the table are 50" long, 34" wide, and 18" tall. The top is made from 1/4" tempered glass for safety.
