Here’s a cool looking table we built for a customer. It’s made from our reclaimed white oak threshing floor 8/4-10/4 materials from old Pennsylvania barns. We jointed and laminated the top together and surfaced it in the shop. Our blacksmith made the gas pipe base. We also did 3 butterfly inlays in the center piece for fun. This has a simple Briwax finish. It’s bar height. Pictures speak louder, so here you go…

  1. Great work. Really like this table. Could you tell me how you finished this table. Any stain or just lacquer then briwax afterwards?

    Thank you

    • Yes, this table has a very simple finish. Just clear Briwax. The patina comes from the wood being so old. It’s just naturally that cool. :) The bow-tie inlays are newer red oak, so you can see the obvious difference in the natural appearance. The centuries old white oak threshing floors just have a great story to tell.
