Staying true to our design concept, we used reclaimed materials to create the table. This table, in particular, is made with reclaimed pine timbers dating back to the 1800s from a historical site in the stockyards of Fort Worth, Texas. We used pieces of mahogany and poplar to add greater detail. The table was then glued up and set to cure.

From here, we cut three Wenge butterfly splines to determine positioning.

Once we determined their placement, Ken hand carved the table one inch deep so that the butterfly splines could be set into the tabletop.

For the wood finish, we decided on a darker stain to bring out the polar detail and to soften the contrast between the reclaimed timbers and the wedge butterfly splines.
With the tabletop completed, we designed table bases out of .5 inch, hand forged, reclaimed steel.
