MAGNUS Table – 10′ long solid black walnut dining table

MAGNUS Table - 10' long solid black walnut dining table

Nearly 10 years ago a black walnut tree in our neighborhood had to be cut down due to rot in the main trunk. (NE Portland, OR). I salvaged 5 limbs that were 14-16″ in diameter and slowly air dried them in my shop. 6 years later I crafted this table from the legs and other walnut from the Northwest. It easily seats 10 people; 12 to get cozy. I made it with removeable leaves at the ends. The frame/skirt is also made from walnut but has custom designed & welded metal brackets that enable the table to be completely disassembled and flat packed (useful in a move 2.5yrs ago). I named it after my son….Magnus.

We have finished the profiling of these new solid fir stools.  These are reclaimed from a 70′ fir tree which was being turned into firewood while I was working on a Rummer house in Beaverton.

Reclaimed Fir StoolsThere are 9 pieces altogether, of which 7 are 20″ tall and have 14″ square tops.  They need a few more weeks to dry but will be ready for the Holidays.

Significant Artifacts

You may not believe it. You may in fact question it, but we custom manufacture every product we design. Reclaimed lumber has so many fascinating qualities: the wood’s unique appearance, its contribution to green building, the history of the wood’s origins and the wood’s physical characteristics such as strength, stability and durability. The process requires intensive labor but it is well worth it. Often this is wood from from long-standing idle buildings, and its sometimes refinished for new purposes. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses and some companies have been known to source wood from less traditional structures such as boxcars, coal mines, and wine barrels. By reclaiming the wood, we not only create something beautiful , but it also preserves historically significant artifacts that would have otherwise been destroyed.
