Salvage Shearing-Machine Buffet

Vintage Niagara Metal Shear Base with Oregon Black Walnut Shelves

Item #F0445


For this substantial, statement-making buffet, we shaped thick reclaimed Oregon black walnut into surfaces that blend seamlessly with the frame of a vintage cast-iron Niagara metal-shearing machine. The original design of the shear informed the design of the wood – the curves of the apron and backsplash echo the curves of the original piece beautifully.

Our one-of-a-kind salvage furniture is constructed in our Portland workshop from found industrial machinery and reclaimed wood from Oregon. We select from vintage i-beam trestles, machine parts, and even streetlamps for the bases, and then scour our selection of reclaimed wood slabs to craft the tops. In most cases, this wood is from deadfall or "scrap" trees that would otherwise be pulped or chipped; in others, the wood is salvaged from old beams. When designing these pieces, we choose and place each piece of wood to best feature its natural characteristics – eccentricities of grain, high figure, burl bark intrusions, and the like. To preserve the open grain of the wood, we use a 100% vegetal food-safe nontoxic finish; steel and iron components are sealed with a layer of wax to preserve their natural patina.
