The Walnut

This story is another many many years in the making. This Walnut came from a neighbouring farmer. The Walnut came from a fallen tree originally on their property Markham ON. He had it milled with aspirations to one day build something. We were happy to give this walnut a second life as a beautiful dinning table.

This specific table seats 6 & is perfect for small spaces. We can make something similar for any size home.

The Main Table

The Main Table is a story literally years in the making. The Mains contacted me about a fallen maple tree on their property. They wanted to know if I could turn their beloved tree into a table. I told them "Yes of course" but it will take 2-3 years. Why you ask. Well a fallen tree was once a living thing & therefore still full of life giving water. It has a moisture content of about.... Therefore it has to sit for ... to dry naturally before it is ready to be kiln dried -otherwise it will crack...

So the Mains & I patiently waited ... until it was ready to work with. Then came the fun part uncovering the beautify of the amazing Spalted Maple Top.

The Avison Young Table 

Inspired by the twisting, winding roots of a tree that support huge trees - this table was a perfect metaphor. As a place to support the meetings of a large organization like Avison Young.

The Scott Project

Jeff Baker does it again: the island, the pew, and now a Harvest Table.

 

So much more - It's a table with deep

significance...a uniquely-special piece of furniture for our little family to enjoy & share with others. 


Custom-designed & locally-made from old "Resons Farm" barn board. It's rustic & filled with memories.

-Tanya Scott
 The Scotts were looking for a unique table to seat everyone in their growing family. They had barn board from their Grandfather's Barn that they were looking to use for the table. So the natural inspiration for a base was a tree... This table is deeply rooted in history & will be around for generations to come.
