The King’s Table

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Last February we posted this blog titled “Milling”. We told you about how some very fine folks hired us to build them a King’s Table. It is a bar height table built from timber from an old grain or wheat silo. Back in Feb we milled those beams and then they sat until they were dry enough to use.

This winter we got down to it – we customized the design with our clients, decided no truss and lots of metal accents would do the trick. This table has thematic coins, including a 1939 wheat penny, bolts and nails epoxied into the holes that were left by the bolts and screws that were originally used when it was a silo.

Here are some before, during and after shots for your viewing pleasure. By the way it looks great on our website too -  www.waterdropworkshop.com – or click “Home” above.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in being a part of a process like this, please pass along our info to them! We love doing custom work, we love giving you an opportunity to share your vision and for us to make that happen!

Thanks for your support!
Erin and Zac
