We took reclaimed Brazilian Cumaru and made a custom table top. It sits on top of a 1925 Singer sewing machine stand. For sale in our Irvington NJ showroom.

Isn’t Ipe an extremely hard wood?

I put a Walnut top on a Singer stand like that for my Jet mini lathe.

Looks more like common Alder from where I sit … ???
But then you cannot have a common wood in an antique store. (page 4 in the rule book)

Grumpymike – I’m sorry you feel that way. While the base is an authentic antique – the table top is reclaimed wood – which is what we do here at our mill. We take wood from old structures that would otherwise be disposed of and repurpose it.

Hmmm, guess I should have put a smiley after my comment … Antique stores specialize in the rare and uncommon items … Alder is a common or secondary wood … I apologize for the poorly placed pun.

Beautiful table. I love old treadles as tables. I ran into a guy who had 8 bases in a shed. I bought the lot of them. Three have been made into tables so far. I love the top. Nice work :)
