Sioux Falls Trestle table

Sioux Falls Trestle table

The Sioux Falls Trestle table was a custom design for a client in South Dakota and has quickly become a favorite here at Carolina Farm Table! This 7’x44″ trestle table and matching bench are made from reclaimed white oak. The lumber came from an old barn in Galax, Virginia just up the road from us and its unique support beams inspired this design. We are blessed to have an amazing team at CFT that work together and make furniture come to life like this piece. We think this table turned out great. Over the past few years shipping has been one of the more challenging things and our team has learned just how important packaging is. I am happy to say it safely made the 1,200-mile trip to its home in South Dakota! We hope you enjoy this table as much as we do!

Wormy Maple Trestle Table

Wormy Maple Trestle Table

This year is flying by & with all the custom work we have, it has been hard to build any available stock. We are so thankful for the work & opportunity to custom-build what our clients have envisioned in the home. It is also nice to build a handmade piece based on the lumber & its natural beauty. We did that with these wormy maple boards that we picked up this winter. Locally cut & dried in Alleghany Co. The result is an outstanding 7’x38″ Tucker Trestle table & matching bench. Like all our tables, it is built to last a lifetime with mortise & tenon joinery throughout the construction. The natural color is brought to life by hand-scraping the wood, a craft that fine woodworkers have used for hundreds of years. Finished with a low-sheen lacquer top coat that makes this piece of art not only beautiful but also water-resistant & easy to clean for everyday use. The price is $8,000 for the set & in-home delivery is available. If you are interested in purchasing this one-of-a-kind dining set, please message, email, or give us a call today? 828-773-0769

Live Edge Reclaimed Lumber

Live Edge Reclaimed Lumber

If you’ve been following along in our posts, you’ve heard about the 100-year-old cabin we reclaimed back in the summer of 2020. We have been able to create some really unique, one-of-a-kind, custom-made tables with the lumber. However, we did set some wood aside, and have a few pieces that haven’t been claimed yet, just in time for the holidays! Because we started with whole logs reclaimed from the cabin, this gave us an opportunity to leave the live edge on the boards that we milled. In the 20 years, I have been building furniture out of reclaimed wood, I have never seen this done. Normally the lumber cut for a barn or farmhouse is cut on all four sides, squared up so to speak. I think the live edge and the reclaimed wood go together so well, and just love the pieces we were able to make! The first table is a live edge reclaimed wormy chestnut top on a cast iron base. This is our NY table base, and it is a reproduction of the old metal bases that were used in factories as work tables. We have found originals over the years and made some great tables, but they were all 36″ tall, built for standing work. These reproductions set the table at 30″, which is the standard dining table height. The size is 72″x36″ and is available for $3,000. The second table is actually an UpLift standing desk, we have built several of these in the last year or two. They have become very popular for at work and in-home offices. There are many variations of this type of desk on the market, but they are definitely not all built the same. The UpLift standing desk bases are the best quality we think, and very sturdy. This one has a reclaimed oak top, 46”x32”, and the base is a graphite grey. It expands from 24” to 50” and is available for $2,000.  The final piece is another cast iron base, but this time it is a coffee table! We love these mini versions and this style would work great in a variety of settings, from the living room to the man cave! 😉 The top is reclaimed oak, size is 48″x22″, 19″ tall and is $1,200.  If you are interested in purchasing one of these one-of-a-kind tables, please message, email or give us a call today! 828-773-0769

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

As we gather with family this Thanksgiving, I am proud to share this post that started one year ago with a photo which was emailed to me… This photo was of a build site and some trees kept from the clearing of the land. Our client, Josh, did not want these logs to be wasted. Rather, he wanted them to be reclaimed into something extra special, that this family could enjoy for a lifetime. So, he contacted us and we agreed to make his vision a reality. Josh was very involved in the project, and together we came up with a game plan. With our guidance, he hired someone with a portable sawmill to cut the logs into boards on-site, and then properly stack them in a friend’s barn. They air-dried there until late summer. We picked up the load and proceeded to finish off the drying process in our wood kiln in Sparta. This was a lengthy process, but we knew it would pay off as we started to build the furniture from these sentimental pieces of wood! The CFT team did an amazing job of choosing the best boards for each project, carefully milling them to get the most use out of the wood we were given. It was not easy, and took several weeks, but we knew our efforts to create something beautiful would pay off! And they sure did! I am so happy with how this 12′ dining table, complete with matching benches & chairs turned out. We also built a custom-made homeschool desk for their kids to work at, which we think is great!! We delivered to Josh’s new house last week and I know his family will be enjoying the dining set as they gather around for the holidays this year, and many years to come. We were so blessed to be chosen for this special job, and are thankful for all our amazing clients who allow us to use our creativity and imagination on a daily basis! As you gather around this year, we hope you can enjoy time with family and friends. Be thankful for what you have been given, and find peace in the simple joys of life. The days are long, but the years are short, friends…
