Industrial Sofa Table from rough sawn old growth Douglas Fir with hairpin legs.
This wood has been salvaged and reclaimed, every piece has been used, now it can be used again!
This piece is made with black angle iron, steel hairpin legs, and brown roughsawn salvaged barnwood.
Table has been sealed with Shellac (shellac is a resin secreted by the female lac bug, on trees in the forests of India and Thailand. It is processed and sold as dry flakes, which are dissolved in ethyl alcohol to make liquid shellac, which is used as a brush-on colorant, food glaze and wood finish. Shellac functions as a tough natural primer sanding sealant, tannin-blocker, odour-blocker, stain, and varnish).
The particular table that you receive may have slightly different characteristics than the one in the picture. Most antique barn wood was logged from old growth trees 50-150 years ago.

i know i’m not the only guy making tables out of reclaimed bowling alleys, so i put a little bit of a different spin on my designs.
made from 1930s era bowling alley maple (not heart pine or oak, like some, but the real high quality maple stuff) “the lebowski” is a low bench or coffee table, depending on your needs.
the dude stands 17.5″ tall and has a 25″ X18″ top.
i filled the gaps and finished the piece with a red-dyed epoxy, then sanded most of it off again, creating a unique, tinted finish. i then buffed on many many layers of “bowling alley wax,” of course…
the legs are 4 actual used bowling pins from a local bowling alley. i threaded them on so they wil be shipped removed and are real easy to put back on.
and there’s a matching side table. check it out here:
contact me if interested in both and we can possibly work out pickups/delivery.
thanks for looking,
