We took one look at this massive cast-iron base from a vintage Landis shoe-stitching machine and knew it deserved to be reborn as a well-heeled table. So we gave it a thick end-grain butcher block–style top of reclaimed Oregon black walnut. The top's rich chocolatey tone coordinates perfectly with the weathered original green enamel of the base.

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.
