Sofa/Console Table With Distressed Indiana Barn Oak Top And Mirror Accented Apron

Contemporary lines meet rustic materials. The top for this table is made of salvaged/reclaimed oak lumber from a barn built in 1888 located east of Arcadia, Indiana. The barn was dismantled in 1996 and the lumber put into storage. I selected boards for the top for their character and color variations. The boards have naturally occurring worm holes and burl figuration. It is sealed with a natural stain and lacquer finish.

The base is black walnut with walnut stain and lacquer sealer. Below the table top I applied a segmented mirror accent band. When viewed from across the room the top seems to "float" above the table base.
