This is a “sofa table” I built out of wood from an old “corn crib” barn, built in 1919, that was falling in in itself that my brother and I tore down last summer. The legs are quarter sawn white oak from the horizontal “slats” on tlhle corlooks n crib. The lower two shelves are also some kind of old oak and the table top is a piece of old hickory from the same barn. I absolutely love the way the old hickory looks and I just had to use it for the top. I custom built it to her dimensions: 45in W x 42in high x 12in deep. She wanted a finish where she could actually feel the old wood, so I just used some Howard’s Feed & Wax and it came out great! Thanks for looking

Absolute perfection !!! I love furnitures coming from old wood. So much history and strength of character is there.

Fantastic table.Sofa tables have an important purpose in the modern home, providing function and style to not just your living room, but to any room in which they are placed. These substantial tables are truly a reflection of your good taste and thoughtfulness in providing family and guests with a convenient place to rest their drinking glass or provide the perfect spot for lighting and candles. They also serve as a statement piece to set the tone of your decor in any area, whether they are directly adjacent to a sofa, against a wall or are a focal point of the room.
