Rustic Industrial Elegance Farmhouse Table

  • December 30, 2015


This is a custom one of a kind farmhouse table with two extension leaves and a matching bench based on an earlier coffee table i also designed. My wife and I wanted to break from the typical farmhouse tables we've seen made with the reclaimed barn lumber and add a touch of elegance and an industrial feel as well. The "chains" at the bottom are fully adjustable with a ratchet set so you can curve them up or down or somewhere in-between. All of the lumber used in this project is reclaimed from old barns. There are subtle inlays of tiger eye gemstone inset into some of the wood to enhance the character. Part of the idea was to make both the top and foundation of the table interesting and beautiful with or without the 2 ft extension leaves for an epic 10 foot table that measures 42' wide. The finishing actually took more than double the build time as my wife likes to build with several layers of sanding sealer, shellac and a natural hand rubbed poly coat, not to mention the epoxy resin inlays.

  • Scratch that last comment...It was an illusion. However, one chain arches up like the hump of an 'm', and the other side dips more like an 'n'. Are these links free to move, play with? It appears that they are held together with a bit of steel rod, so maybe they can be moved?
