Reclaimed Wood Console Table, 7 foot long, Unique table, Ready to Ship Free
Reclaimed wood console table. This unique table is made from a log salvaged from an authentic log cabin not far from our shop. The cabin succumbed to the ravages of time and water damage after standing for more than a century. Trees were chopped down and hewed by hand to build this pioneer home. Our Amish friends salvage the logs when the structure was no longer viable. Their local sawmill then slices off pieces so that we can preserve them for the next generation and pass them on to you. Since this was a low log on the cabin water damage took most of the sapwood but left the heart wood intact. The original ax hewing marks are still visible on the top surface of the table.
This one of a kind piece measures 7' long x 8" - 10" deep x 32" high

HISTORY OF OUR SHOP
For five years now we at Spoken Wood Design have been proud to be able to preserve a little of our pioneer heritage with modern equipment and techniques. Our lumber is gleaned from salvaged old barns and cabins in Wisconsin and Iowa. From the Civil War to Teddy Roosevelt's presidency local farmers grew and collected hay to feed their cows through the long Wisconsin winters. Pioneering Immigrants broke ground with horses and oxen and built their farmsteads. Most of these buildings were in use for well over 100 years before being obsolesced by modern farming practices. They saw farming change from horse power to diesel power, from loose hay mows to stacks of hay bales to today's plastic wrapped round bales. As the culture changed so too do the buildings that support it. Today, Amish crews disassemble the barns and salvage as much as they can. This wood was cut from old growth trees in the 19th century by hand saw and ax. I try to present as much of that old effort as I can. Most of these trees started growing before there was a United States of America.
Our hand-hewn tables add an elegant rustic character to your living room or hallway. Can you feel the history, the effort, that went into making each cut as you run your hand over the smooth surface of the table? The perfect combination of modern style and organic subtle touch. A great way to display and serve in your home.
We have smoothed and flattened the top surface so you can set glasses on it. Each piece IS DIFFERENT and has its own story and history. Like all reclaimed, upcycled, repurposed and recycled products there are flaws and nicks and knotholes. It's not Ikea.
