Redwood Harvest Table

The Redwood Harvest Table was made entirely from urban salvaged redwood, obtained from California Hardwood Producers in Auburn, CA who specializes in the reclamation of “salvage” lumber. The project began with 3 redwood slabs, the first two being a 16’ long, sequential pair, 3 ½” thick by about 26” wide at their butt ends, tapering to about 18”. They were aligned opposed to each other (the butt of one slab adjacent to the tip of the other) to maximize the table width. The third slab provided the legs and stretchers, which were assembled using traditional mortise and thru tenon joinery, with tapered keys to lock the joints together. At a finished size of 43” wide by 13’ long, it is quite massive, yet the elegance of the design belies that mass.
