Welcome to Sandy. A table we were commissioned to make using a remarkable piece of wood that Hurricane Sandy of 2012 left behind. This solid white oak table top measures 93’’ long and almost as wide at the root flare. It is approx. 4’’ thick. Many hours of chainsawing, routering, design, sanding, finishing and to say the least very heavy lifting went into this special table. The log weighed nearly 1 ton and now we estimate the top to weigh about 350lbs. The bench is made from the same log so the curve and wood grain follow beautifully. It was a very rewarding project. Thank-you to all involved in this transformation. I beleive this to be a perfect example of adding value to the forest. What could have been $80 worth of fire wood is now a one of a kind heirloom table that will hopefully last as long as the spirit of all those who were touched by Hurricane Sandy.

What an incredible slab. That 3rd picture says is all “Massive”! A bit of beauty in all that destruction. Nice work!

I love it. I totally understand the weight issue.

Nice to have friends! Looks great in its new setting.

Hard to keep perspective about trees when they are strewn about a disaster area?

Great work!
