The salvaged wood is actually higher quality than the wood used for making typical tables today. Even with its age, this wood will look better and last longer than anything on the market. Old growth North American salvaged wood is preferred, which means that a number of the joists and beams we select were hewn from trees growing in forests in the 1700s. The table legs and the skirt are also made from the same salvaged wood.
The table skirt is attached so that it is ?floating?. This allows it to shrink and expand with the humidity on any given day, minimizing splitting and warping.
Five coats of finish are applied by hand using a marine spar varnish and tung oil mixture. Each coat is allowed to dry for at least eight hours before it is sanded smooth and another coat is applied. On average, it can take a week or more before the finishing process has been completed. This method of hand applying the finish provides these tables with a depth and richness that a spray booth cannot provide.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of reclaimed wood, finishes and sizes are approximate and may vary and such variances should be expected.
This table features tapered legs with pre-installed leg levelers.
