Round Pedestal Table in Antique Chestnut
This early-colonial style dining table was built for a customer in who was looking for a small custom table for casual use.  The table is constructed from reclaimed Chestnut boards which were resawn from barn beams. Since the American Chestnut tree population was destroyed by a blight in the 1900's, the only source of this wood is through reclaimed barn timbers.  The wood used in the construction of this piece was from a barn built in the 1880's in Western Pennsylvania. The size of the table was approximately 42" diameter x 30" high - providing seating for 4-5 people.  The base of the table was hand turned from a chestnut beam and the legs were attached with traditional mortise and tenon joinery. The table size, style, wood selection, and coloring can be customized to suit the customer's requirements.
