This table was made from Sapele, white redwood burl, and the actual gears used in the cigar factories machinery. The finish is pre cat lacquer.
Everyone here at S+L Millworks had a hand in making this table. If you look at picture #5 you can see when these gears were manufactured. You can see how this table and the other table was made here.

Great idea and use of found objects. The contrasts between the iron and the wood, the natural and the man-made are interesting and well done. I’ve got some family heirlooms that might look good this this…..Thanks!!

This is another great piece and it’s certainly an eye catcher.

This is a very beautiful piece of furniture, the gears fit perfect into this Art Deco style hall table! Adding to the overall style of the design. Your craftsmanship looks flawless, congrats!!!

I like it a lot.

Did you grind the bottom gear flat, or did you route out the wood to bury the gear?

Thank you all for your comments.
Woodchucker, I ground the flat spot and welded a tab on the back.
Lightweightlady, there are two more pieces. A chalkboard that matches the tables and a round desk that Diego made.

-- Have a great day.

WOW! That’s quite a desk! But no gears incorporated into it? All the pieces look fabulous.

Thank you. All the other pieces go in one room. This is the receptionist’s desk it sits all alone on the first floor.
