Coffee Table Transformation

When we see a pile of old wood or a chippy paint door, our creative brains start racing! Our imaginations immediately travel down the “what can I do with this” track! We draw energy from our customers who are traveling down that same track… the ones who walk into our warehouses and immediately see potential. This imagination, coupled with a creative process is what turns a pile of vintage lumber into a beautiful treasure.

Such is the case with this stunning coffee table. Team member, Tyler Dooley, recently built this beautiful piece of furniture for one of our customers. The table was constructed using a stack of salvaged, circular sawn oak beams. The 3″ x 5″ beams were ripped and lightly planed. Great effort was made to ensure that as much of the original patina as possible was preserved. Once the table was constructed, Tyler applied Briwax in a rustic pine color to finish the table. The Briwax brought the wood to life and gave it that rich tone that shows off its character and natural patina. The pictures to below show the details of the finished wood table.

The table was finished with Briwax which helps to seal and protect the wood without covering up the natural patina.
