Reclaimed Wood Table With Flat Iron Base
This was one of our first metal and wood tables where I really felt that we had achieved something special. It has a well proportioned, unique style where the ironwork so handsomely complements the beauty in the great reclaimed wood.
The first time we crafted this table, we were exceptionally lucky to find a once-in-a-lifetime batch of reclaimed cherry. The wood came from floor joists from a plant owned by Thomas Edison. They build phonograph cabinets in this New London Wisconsin facility. Most of the building had hemlock floor joists. However, this one little section had a mix of cherry and poplar -- the primary and secondary woods in furniture building. One can only imagine that they ran out of wood, or grabbed the wrong pile... but cherry floor joists they were. I'm sorry, but we do not have any of that cherry batch left. However, this table would look great crafted in any number of woods including (but not limited to) reclaimed oak, sapele (similar to mahogany), and red elm.
There is also a bar height table countertop shown with a similar design. That particular top was reclaimed, live-edge white oak.
The base on this table is $850 and most tops run $85 per square foot.
