Building a Reclaimed Wood Table

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Matt and I have been discussing the idea of constructing a rustic table for a few months now and we have a local salvage yard nearby that offers different kinds of reclaimed wood for just such a project.  We’ve gone back and forth on whether we want to build one for the outdoors or a slightly more polished version for our kids playroom area, soon to be converted to a study.

A few months ago I got an email from Will of Windfall Cove, introducing himself and we struck up a conversation.  I’m so fascinated with this process so I asked Will to share some more information about how he builds a reclaimed wood farm table. 

Will and his business partner Brian used to work in fire and medical services, but had a long time passion for woodworking, so they decided to follow it and begin a new business building furniture for people in their area and Windfall Cove was born.  (I love these kinds of stories!)  In their Massachusetts town, Will and Brian handcraft heirloom quality rustic pieces with weathered and reclaimed barn wood (detail seen below) with their customer’s custom design in mind.

Here’s Will to share the process of building a reclaimed wood farm table:

“Hello CG readers, Will here to share with you how a table goes from order to completion at Windfall Cove.  Our clients usually have a familiar story. They have a particular space in their home or office that is in need of the perfect piece of furniture. After they have shopped with furniture stores and either are dissatisfied with the options or found that items sold cannot be ordered to the exact size or style they are in need of, we come in to build a custom table for them.
