This is a very nice harvest table that I made from a 120 year old barn that was torn down. It is made of rescued antique heart pine. Heartpine is generally considered to be recycled timber from first generation trees (trees that were standing when the first settlers landed in the 1600s). Most of the trees were long leaf pines, many as old as 300+ years. There were approximately 80,000,000 acres of these trees and almost all were gone by 1900. This wood was the primary building material for homes and factories. It is now being recycled as heart pine. It was a widely utilized timber throughout our history for traditional flooring, construction, dock pilings and was the timber of choice during the colonial period for British ship masts. Most structures built after 1900 were from second generation trees and do not exhibit the very tight growth rings associated with the first generation timber. Today, heart pine is reclaimed predominantly from old industrial buildings and warehouses, where it was a favorite for it's massive dimensions and strength.

This table measures 91" (7' 7") long by 42" wide by 30 1/2" tall and is very heavy! There are two drawers on each end and are 24" deep and have antique bin pulls for handles. The top is made from the old 2" by 10" heart pine beams that were the floor of the hay loft of the old barn. It has 4" breadboard ends that are pegged through the 1" tennon of the top. The legs are a turned husky style leg and measure 5" at the top. THESE TABLES ARE VERY WELL MADE UNLIKE TODAYS MODERN FURNITURE AND WILL LAST A LIFETIME IF TAKEN CARE OF JUST LIKE ANTIQUE FURNITURE HAS.
