Furniture with the markings of a past life…
I got this lumber from a recycle lumber yard. They pulled it from an old bank building in Sacramento, built around the 1930's.
I found one really weather beaten plank which I think might have been from the building's facade. I chose this plank to be the front of the table. The drawer handles are tuner knobs from a 1930's radio that was beyond repair.

I really like the lines of the legs as well as the wood used. The dark spot on the front left side really gives it character. Looks like a job well done!

Its great to see old lumber transformed into something useful and good looking. I like the solid look of this table and the gothic style legs, perhaps a table you would find in a castle somewhere.

I like it. I have not been so fortunate in finding good deals on recycled lumber… still looking. Nice use here.

love, love it! What are the dimensions? And how did you make the legs? I'd love to make something similar for our new family room.

GREAT! Salvaged wood is a nice variation. Anyone can make a table from new, straight wood, but what you've done is so damn satisfying.
