Reclaimed Sheriff Table {third in a series}

Last fall we started creating a series of tables featuring some historical reclaimed lumber. You can read about the history of the boards on my post from last September.

This is the third table in the series...

We custom design and fabricate the welded metal bases on each table so no two tables are alike. For this particular piece, we designed the base so that you could slide baskets underneath. {great for blanket, pillow, book and magazine storage}

The tongue and groove, beaded lumber is always different so clearly each piece is unique for that reason alone. 

We choose to set the boards inside the steel frame for a more modern industrial look.

The boards we selected for this table barely had any paint left on them so we opted to strip them and seal the natural wood. {I'm including some shop photos} As you can see, the boards cleaned up beautifully and the grain is nothing short of gorgeous.

We gave the boards a light sanding to smooth out any rough spots and then applied several coats of poly to seal them all around.

Here are a few more pictures of the handcrafted piece. You know, as I look at the finished product, this would make a fantastic bench for and entry too...lots of room underneath for baskets of hats, scarves, mittens and backpacks!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation.
Have a great day!
