It's made 100 % from reclaimed wood, it's going to be about six feet long, it's going to be about three feet wide and it's going to be exactly three feet: tall, a 36 inch tall table, that's a true counter, height table and it's a little bit taller Than a conventional dining table because well it's going to be a whole lot more badass than the conventional dining table, so we've got to make a little taller right or something like that. So the lumber came from a house located on West belt here in the city of st.
Louis, the house itself was built in 1882, which means this lumber is who knows how old? But it's old, the owner of the house, had planned to rehab the structure and then somewhere during the planning phase of things, the roof, the second-story roof, like the whole thing collapsed basically into the basement, took everything with it. There wasn't a whole lot that could be done or saved so the end result was the owner had the building demolished. I was able to grab a few boards before the demo.
Guy did his thing. I didn't get much, but what I did get is it's good enough to build a six foot by three-foot table. So that's what it's going to become so far, Construction went pretty well, I've got the legs and the apron put together. What you see here is going to be the top at some point today or tomorrow be a whole lot cooler if it's today, but it's kind of a function of how cooperative this will wants to be.
