We were contacted in the Summer of 2011 about a tree that was located in the front yard of the homeowner. The tree was dying and we wanted to make sure the beauty of its wood was not wasted on firewood. The tree was carefully taken down to ensure safety of the surrounding property and the tree trunk. We transported the tree from its home in Salem, Oregon to our property in Oregon City where it was milled and set to air dry for about 2 years. After slowly being kiln dried the book-matched slabs were ready to be transformed into the stunning dining table above.

By controlling all aspects of production we can ensure quality that lasts for generations. – “”:

Nice work and great wood. How long did this take to complete and what is the finish?

Beautiful table, I personally think the chrome or SS legs are perfect. Is there steel structure hidden from view that helps control the wood?

There is no steel structure just a 2 1/2” thick slab. The finish is precat lacquer. It took 3 weeks to finish the project. At over 11’ long and 4’ wide it was very heavy and we tried to minimize the number of times we had to flip it over. My guess is that the top alone is over 250 lbs.
