Typical shipping is within 4 weeks of order and we will send pictures of your table before we box it up for shipment.
HOW TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR TABLE 1) Choose your table top size and shelf style from the menu. Keep in mind that the width measurement refers to the overall width of the board and that boards, like trees, vary in width. With these natural, tapered edge boards, the usable surface width is generally 1" -2" less.
Custom lengths are available. Order the next size up and indicate your specific custom length in the personalization field.
2) Choose your height, custom heights can be made for you with some limitations, please inquire.
3) Choose a length. This too can be customized for you. Purchase the next size longer table and specify your desired length in the "Order special instructions" box at checkout.
Choose your wood finish and indicate it in the "Order special instructions" box at checkout. See the listing photos for options. Each of these century old slabs takes stain a little differently. Message us for more photos of a particular shade shown on tables.
Choose the color of leg that you would like and indicate in the "Order special instructions" box at checkout.
A phone number where we can reach you would be helpful. It's not uncommon for us to have questions or clarifications about your custom piece or delivery updates to share. It will never be shared.
I want your table to be the perfect fit for your home. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or special considerations before ordering.
Each of these century old slabs is unique and the listing photos provide a representation of the variety. They are loaded with surface features which is the appeal for many people. Expect cracks, crevices, worm holes, knots and hew marks. It's not Ikea!

A HISTORY OF OUR WOOD Our lumber is trimmed from massive hand-hewn beams salvaged from pioneer barns and cabins in Wisconsin and Iowa. Amish crews disassemble the barns and salvage as much as they can.
Most of these barns were in use for over 100 years and saw farming change from horsepower to diesel power. As farming culture changed so too did the buildings that support it. Our wood was cut from old growth trees in the 18th and 19th century by hand saw and ax, then shaped by hand with adzes and muscle. We try to present as much of that old effort as we can.
We have smoothed and flattened the top surface so you can set glasses on it. Each piece is unique and has its own story and history. Like all reclaimed, upcycled, repurposed and recycled products there are flaws and cracks, axe marks and knotholes.
Most all of these century old slabs have some degree of cracks and fissures. When there is a piece that might need a little reinforcement, I mortise in butterflies or dovetails or "patches". The wood for the butterflies is also antique. They are part decoration and part structural.
The butterfly joints we use are inspired by George Nakashima's furniture of the late 20th century. Many of his pieces are in museums around the world.
Each piece is handcrafted and made sustainably with reclaimed wood from barns across the upper Midwest.
