Finally finished up this 7 ft dining table for a friend of ours. It's made from reclaimed oak from an old smokehouse we got from Good Wood here in east Nashville. It was pretty interesting working with it, it would smell like smoked meat anytime we were sanding or cutting it! We aren't usually a fan of a glossy finish but in this case we really love how it brings out the imperfections and character in the wood. If you look close you can see the antique railroad dated nails that are inlaid into each end of the table to give it even more character.
Here are some flags we recently finished that are available for purchase. We have one of each available.
Another successful year at the Tomato Art Fest! We had a great time meeting everyone and really appreciate all of you coming out and showing your support!
We just recently finished this coffee table with a reclaimed oak top and antique White sewing table legs. The table is finished with numerous coats of tabletop varnish and the legs are sealed to preserve the current distressing but prevent them from rusting any further. It's dimensions are 48"x24" and 16" tall. We're really proud of how it turned out.
Here's another custom flag we made for some friends of ours here in east Nashville. If you look close you can see the railroad date nails we used for their anniversary date.
We've been a little quiet lately, but that's only because our focus so far in 2015 has been on getting ourselves a proper workshop built so we can keep up with orders and expand on what we can build. Up until this point we've done all our projects in our kitchen, living room and, when it's nice outside (not today!), on our back deck. We also eventually have plans to add a gallery above our workshop to show off our work!
We we had planned to break ground on our workshop this week, however, Mother Nature had other plans:
So, right now we are working inside our warm house, prepping some pallet wood to be installed in a hotel here in Nashville in the coming weeks:
Here are a few flags we finished up this weekend for a lovely couple in east Nashville just in time for Christmas! They recently moved in to their renovated home and needed something to help decorate their living room. We really love how these came out, if you look close you can see the nails used to hold the large stars in place are old railroad dated nails!
We're getting closer and closer to having our own shop. One of the biggest reasons we want a dedicated shop is that we really want to start building more and more large items, such as these tables:
First is a 36.5" x 59" table with hairpin legs, deep red cracked paint, and reclaimed railroad tie dated nails holding it together. These each have a two digit number on them get correlates to the year they were first used. This table has nails from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s. The table is finished with a special rockhard tabletop varnish. Contact us if you are interested in this table or having us custom build one for you!
This table is a 3.5" thick slab of live edge poplar with hairpin legs. It is 17" at its widest point and 46.5" at its longest and is 17.5" high. It is also finished with numerous coats of tabletop varnish.
