This table is sure to be a topic of conversation for any living space! Made from lumber harvested from the once plentiful American Chestnut tree, this piece has a story to tell. Nearly all American Chestnut trees were killed by the chestnut blight in the early 1900s, which were subsequently damaged by insects, leaving holes and discoloration in the standing trees. The trees were then harvested and converted into lumber.
Because of the blight wiping out nearly all mature American Chestnut trees, its lumber is both rare and relatively valuable. Wormy Chestnut in particular is usually salvaged from old barns and other structures. Between the nail holes, discoloration, worm and insect damage, Wormy Chestnut is the perfect candidate material for a rustic piece of furniture for your home.
This particular lumber was harvested from a tobacco barn is South Carolina, making its way to Wisconsin as a poorly constructed DIY kitchen table. That is how Capital Woodworking came to acquire this unique material to give it the justice it deserves as the table you see here.
Constructed with traditional breadboard table end joinery, this table is not your typical “farm table” which are often put together quickly with construction grade lumber and pocket hole screws. Each worm and nail hole has been filled with tinted epoxy to create a perfectly smooth tabletop. The welded steel legs are attached with metal threaded inserts and machine screws for ease of assembly, are simple yet durable, and let the tabletop do all the talking!
