We were asked to do something different with this piece. Typically we work with reclaimed Wood only, but our customer wanted a table with metal legs to match a few other pieces they already had. We had some experience with basic welding and metal working, so we gave it a shot and this what turned out. The ends of the legs needed to be splayed so we cut wedges off a piece of bar stock, welded them to the leg and ground them flush. After all the welding and grinding we finished the metal with rust reformer and a flat black paint. The wood surfaces are of a butcher block type made with reclaimed oak. The wood was connected to the legs with 2” pyramid head lag screws, that we made by a blacksmith in North Carolina. In the end the customer was happy so we were happy.
