This is a project I finished for a client a few weeks ago. Its made from reclaimed apple cider vinegar tanks salvaged from the Manzana company out of Sebastopol, CA that were originally constructed in 1919….nice dense old growth doug fir. They wanted a patchwork, rustic style farmhouse table with some nice colors they chose. What do you guys think?

Very nicely done. Fine work.

I really like the patchwork.
Where did you come across the wood for that project.

Thanks for the comments! @WhoMe There’s a great salvage store in Petaluma, CA called Heritage Salvage. They have an amazing selection of reclaimed wood.

I love it, and picture 4 really shows the texture – I just want to run my hands over it.

Excellent work on that beautiful rustic table and bench. Like the build and colors, very creative use of reclaimed wood.

Freaking amazing. Where do you live. I’m in Nova Scotia, Canada if you are close to me I will pay for you to make me something like this. Absolutely gorgeous.

@cchalifax I’m sorry but I’m on the opposite coast in Berkeley, CA. I hope you can find what you’re looking for. Thanks everyone else for the kind words. It was one of the few projects I was really sad to see go.
