This Reclaimed Antique Heart Pine Confrence table was handcrafted by W. Corey Airington (July 2014)
I removed the ceiling joists and a couple floor joists of two different farm homes built around 1900, aprox. 10 miles from the table’s present day location, to make this twelve foot long table with single planks running the entire length. These planks are selected and sanded by hand for the most character.
Ancient Long Horned Beetles once lived in this lumber and left nothing but their intricate tunnels, nails were removed, sawmarks were sanded, cracks are left exposed and finished to gloriously display the former life of the Pine Planks.
The cutouts you see in the apron is for technology connection boxes.

Beautiful table from some used wood. Like the way you did the top with the beetle tunnels, most striking.

your a man after my own heart, i love this wood, when i moved to alabama from alaska i discovered antique southern heart pine, i had never seen such beautiful wood, so my sons and i tore down a house that was built in 1900 and we salvage every board we could, so the inside of my home is all SYHP…my dresser is made from it also, and i still have a lot left that im going to use for a small business, making boxes and things, the table you made is so beautiful and would be a pleasure to sit at, in fact i might look at the wood more then thinking about anything else..thanks for sharing this..
