This table uses some really nice reclaimed beech that we get from tobacco barns being torn down in the mid-south. The wood was originally used for roof rafters and your table may just have the nail holes to prove it. Beech is a great looking wood… full of reclaimed character and just as hard as oak or maple. I love working with beech because it was never widely used as a building material in this country and therefore does not turn up every day in the reclaimed world. Before the advent of the chainsaw beech was often considered too hard to cut down so it was largely ignored as a building material. Thus it is far less common than oak, fir and pine when it comes to reclaimed material.

We had been on the hunt for the prefect coffee table for so long and decided that since we couldn’t agree on anything, the best (and most rewarding) thing to do would be to make one ourselves!
We bought an old growth hardwood plank from a favourite local antique store and re-used metal hairpin legs from another table we had.
These type of legs work perfect for any DIY project and are widely available on the internet. By just screwing them into each corner we created the perfect coffee table with lots of character! And it was so easy! Now we just need a rug to ground the space and onto the decorating!
But something tells me this isn’t the last of dabbling into furniture design.

Since it was launched in 2007, New York-based furniture company CounterEvolution has carved out a unique niche, creating a line of innovative furniture from reclaimed wood from bowling lanes. The company’s latest table, the Manhattan, was designed to fit into the pint-size apartments that are found in big cities. The sleek table should enable New Yorkers dine in style, while also reducing their carbon footprint.
