A Field trip flash back
Several weeks ago we were contacted again by Mike Wolfe from Antique Archaeology- he had two great picks from on the road that worked great as table bases. The first was what he thought was the base of an old street lamp (cast iron and EXTREMELY heavy), and the second was the gear mechanism of an old embalming table (also heavy). He wanted us to design tops using reclaimed lumber that would marry well with the distressed and weathered bases. Challenge Accepted!
We decided to use a dirty top oak and wrap both tops in a metal band to tie them to their bases. With the trusty Woodstock concoction, we rusted the bands to age them and then sealed them with a clear coat.
After assembling the tables, we headed over to the Antique Archaeology shop at Marathon Village to drop them off. We love the whole team over at Antique Archaeology, and had a great time getting a sneak peak into their storage room. Check out the photos below!
