From Forest
To Table

It's my pleasure to present these beautiful and unique hardwood tables for sale: All of these tables are created using hardwood from the forest on the property.

We absolutely love our new wood coffee table and fits perfectly in our tiny home cottage in front of the fireplace. It is a beautiful piece, solid with lots of little subtle lines that make it a truly unique piece of furniture. We are looking forward to using it for many years to come.

ABOUT - FOREST TO TABLE

During the winter of 2021, I built 41 dining tables, desks and 23 coffee tables. I will be making more limited editions of tables.

The idea behind building the tables had existed in my mind for years, that I would one day build beautiful dining and boardroom tables from hardwood lumber I had milled from the forest on my property.  When Covid arrived in 2020,  I decided to do the Forest Table project.
