This console table has a top of Louisiana sinker cypress, with two posts salvaged from the porch of a demolished house in Vermillion Parish, and a cypress handrail as the stretcher. The capitols on the posts are original to the posts, the base blocks are made from old cypress lumber from the same house. Sold at festival in New Orleans, it now sits as an entry table in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

WOW!! Thanks for the nice welcome and comments. When we enjoy what we create, this is the outcome, and hopefully others can benefit from our labor. I have plenty more to share.

Liberty Ship Hatch Cover Table – made from a hatch cover from the Liberty transport ships from WWII. The tops were made from fir or pine, and the base is made from some reclaimed white pine that came from an old warehouse demolish in Canada. The stretcher is reclaimed Louisiana cypress. The finish is nothing more than a linseed oil blend, which helps to bring out the true color of the wood, with the dead flat look.
