A recent project by The #1 San Antonio SawMill
We made this 16ft Long X 6ft wide oblong conference table for a private school that wanted to use it in their english class. The Space was industrial so we build a metal frame and dressed it with live oak and hickory. The only exposed metal was the 3×3 inch metal tubing for legs. The table was also made in four components to fit it trough the doors and into the class room. All the wood is from 100% reclaimed trees. in fact the Oak we used was from a tree that was planted in 1920 on an historic estate. The sad part was that while the new owners remodeled the house a dozer spilled over 20 gal. of diesel on the root ball and the tree was lost. This is why urban milling is so rewarding.

I’ve made a few like this and know how difficult yet also how rewarding they can be. This is an outstanding example of heavy scale beauty. Great work.

Big and tremendous work on it. How long does matter but heavy is the big question??? Excellent work on combining metal and wood. Thanks for posting.

Excellent work! The story of reclaiming the wood makes it that much better.

Now that’s a table! When do you start on the chairs?

We’ve got a lot of wood that we wish could be repurposed into something so nice, but considering all the circumstances, most of it will end up keeping us warm for years to come!

Thanks for sharing.

its hard for me to believe that you only had 5 comments on this build, this is fantastic and you certainly are to be commended for making sure these trees that come down get used and milled up, thank you…and i hope you get more business like this..bravo the job really well done.
