This table was built using old beams from one of the oldest barns in East Farnham Qc. The barn was replaced by the one in the back ground. We delivered the table and benches to the Rivercross farm yesterday. It sits on a cliff side hill top where visitors can sit and enjoy a prestigious valley view, speckled with prize winning show horses.

Very, very, very cool. I’m so glad you featured the joints on the surface. You can call them crumb escapements. Really a wonderful salvage. One of my favorites yet, for sure.

Very nice way of keeping the old barns’ memory alive.
It doesn’t get much more rustic then that!

I’d agree with Al, as I too like the inclusion of the old joints being prominently displayed, as well as the fact that you kept it fairly rough overall, rather than really planing everything down and making perfect new cuts everywhere.

Any shots of the expansive view from it’s new home?

The feeling of history one gets from just looking at these pictures is amazing. Must be quite an experience to actually touch and sit on them. What a magical and spiritual feeling.

Recycling old wood can be a real pain but totally worth it. I’m glad they took the time and effort to save this piece of history. Colors like that don’t come from a can. Great work.

crumb escapements? Heck NO, those have to be Drool Drains!

That is just cool beyond comment! Wow!
