An Identity Crisis of Small Proportions

Some things can’t be rushed. Or faked. Like the character of reclaimed wood. Warm. Rich. Saturated with history. Vintage wood has a patina that only decades of wear can impart.

The red oak used to make this hallway bench (or is it a cocktail table?) is reclaimed from railroad boxcar plank flooring.  For more than 30 years, the wood in these planks carried loads of cargo from here to there. Cattle from the stockyards of Colorado to the meat packing district in Kansas City.  Washing machines from plants in Ohio to distribution warehouses in Dallas. Canned goods. Dry goods. Clothing. Hardware. Building materials. These things the movement of which we take for granted.

This bench/table measures 54 inches by 16 inches and is 18 inches tall. Perfectly suited as a bench in the hallway (or a cocktail table), this is a multi-purpose utilitarian piece for the modern apartment.

Materials:  Reclaimed red oak, Dark raw tung oil, Good ol’ brown wax.
