Mission White Oak Reclaimed Wood Tabletop
Post-Consumer wood salvaged from old buildings, bridges, wine and olive tanks, fencing, shipping dunnage, bleacher seating and other structures can be reclaimed and used in the manufacture of handcrafted tabletops and countertops. Once collected and processed, the reclaimed wood receives a second life. The reclaimed wood used in the production of this countertop is White Oak originating from industrial shipping in the eastern portion of the United States. The countertop was produced from precisely cut 1-½ inch thick planks, ranging in widths from 3 to 6 inches. The various planks were joined together using the biscuit joinery method and reinforced with recessed square steel tubing for added stability. The resulting countertop was then sanded, sealed, and finished with a clear oil or polyurethane.
Wood, which can be removed, reclaimed and reused, is ultimately biodegradable.
