I am pleased to announce the arrival of the Timber-Frame Trestle Table, designed to mimic the style of framing construction the reclaimed timbers were sourced from. This table is available in custom sizes, in lengths from 7 to 12 feet. The table is made from architecturally salvaged Reclaimed Douglas Fir, which was milled in Oregon approximately 100 years ago. This a true modern-antique piece, and I am happy to see a historic lumber product receive a second life as furniture.
Reclaimed antique wood is truly unrivaled in terms of its beauty, density and clarity. Additionally, reclaimed lumber is valuable for its historical significance. Reclaimed lumber is generally supplied from buildings built around the turn of the century and, as a consequence, is a reflection on the history of certain regions and industries. Recycled wood is very popular with those of us concerned with the environmental issues surrounding logging of the remaining stands of old growth forest. My reclaimed lumber products come from old growth forests harvested decades ago and reduce the need to harvest current old growth stands.
Salvaged lumber generally contains varying degrees of "character marks" which result from previous joinery and the period milling process. These include saw marks, bolt and nail holes, mortises, notches, and the seasoning checks which result from being air-dried for many years. These are testament to the age and history of the piece, and in combination with the patina formed over many years, they give the piece a unique and visually interesting surface quality that is impossible to fake.
This finish on this table is resistant to wine, beer, cola, coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk and water etc. according to German Industrial DIN 68861 - 1C. The finish does not contain biocides or preservatives. It is safe for man, animal and plant when dry and complies with German DIN 53160 (fast to perspiration and saliva) and EURO-NORM EN 71 (suitable for children's toys). This finish makes product care simple and easy. In most cases all that's needed is an occasional wipe-down with a soft cloth dampened with water. A detailed finish description is available on request.
I take my finish process very seriously, and can work with you every step of the way to match a specific existing color, compliment a room tone, or to create something entirely new and unique.
