Dining Room Table from Reclaimed Wood

Amy, from Buffalo Roam, had just moved into her new house and had a big hole where the dining table should be.  Luckily, her husband is handy and decided to build them a new one.  The source of the heavy-duty tabletop is pretty awesome: it is made from three planks of apple wood that came out of the old Santa Fe rail road box cars that carried wine.

Some of the really cool things about using reclaimed wood for a project like this is that it’s age gives it such a gorgeous patina, and there are authentic details (like stamped labels from the boxes) that give the tabletop extra character.

Check out the building process for this table at Buffalo Roam.
