Cenzo Design - Pittsburgh Custom Modern Furniture  - Reclaimed Lumber Dining Table

At the core of our mission statement is the drive to reduce our consumption of new raw materials which is why we love being able to work on projects like this reclaimed dining table. Our client brought us several pieces of 100-year-old reclaimed building timbers with the request that we join the boards and make a custom dining tabletop from them. What always seems like an easy task when using reclaimed lumber, it usually turns into an intensive manhunt for old nails and screws that can’t be run through planers and jointers.

The addition of the client-designed steel rod legs (which bolt through the surface-mounted steel plates) added a mid-century modern flair to the “industrial rustic” aesthetic of the table. To avoid more catastrophic splitting of the dry &  soft lumber, 24 butterfly splines in total were added to the top and bottom of the table. Our only regret about this project is that it’s a one-of-a-kind piece, because we’d love to have one in our home too.
