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.

Thank you for all your comments and questions.
To answer some questions.
I made the legs by ripping the sides on center.
Then made an arc pattern, marked each piece and cut with a band saw (then used a top bearing trace router to finish).
The beading is made from two pieces so it could bend to the shape of the arc

I hope these other photos help explain more.
Thank you

without breaking.

I got the wood at B&B lumber in Los Angeles.
