Lovely live edge table crafted from salvaged lumber
As anyone who follows my post knows, my oldest daughter married in May; yes the father of the bride is wearing a Hawiian shirt. If you are new to Blue Antler Studio, welcome, and you can catch up on all the fun by looking at my earlier postings.
Anyway she and her new husband just moved from their tiny Brooklyn apartment into a beautiful loft. Like he did for our other daughter when she and her husband moved into their first house, my “talented hubby” crafted a beautiful table for the latest newlywed’s new home; and this weekend we made the two-day drive to Brooklyn to deliver them the table.
The table is not just your average table, it is a seven-foot slab of live-edge, spalted maple and it is a collaborative work of art between the Good Lord and my hubby! The benches are spalted hickory and reclaimed heart pine, left unsealed for a raw finish; unlike the table which my hubby hand rubbed to an incredible sheen. The legs and supports are constructed from galvanized pipes attached to industrial wheels. It is perfectly suited for the hip young couple and their urban loft home.
The drive was long but colorful and scenic.
When we spotted one of the iconic water towers of Brooklyn,
we knew we were getting close.
we arrived at the lovely, spacious loft – it is amazing!
And the table…
fit perfectly in its new home.
Over the weekend we gathered often around the table to enjoy great food and wine, conversation and laughter; toasted the newlyweds and their new home; thanked the Good Lord for making such beautiful things as trees and family and cheese; and of course we bragged and bragged on my hubby and the table.
