Vintage Industrial Workbench / Dining Table

Our latest piece, an Industrial workbench inspired dining table.
Seats 8- 10 people.

The legs and cross bracing are reclaimed hardwood house framing.
We've left the original weathered patterns on the legs.

  We've retrieved the design from one of our ideas in an old sketch book.
The photo below is almost identical to the original design sketch.
With the cross bracing been a visual feature, enabling plenty of leg room and making the table very stable. 

  We've used recycled oregon beams for the bench top and have retained as much of the character and history of the timber as possible.


This beautiful weathered table is constructed using hand finished rebate joints through out.

The table has been sanded to a smooth velvety finish. Lovely.


We have this table design available to order from our store
