    They're gonna make the 'new' table from the old one. Few more nails and a darker oak stain, look completely different!

    It looks like something I might have made!
    It reminds me of what I called our Saturday night pizza table. It was made out of ship's cabin door found on the beach . My mate who is a joiner said it was made out of various hardwoods that the builder had lying around in his workshop. I made it with folding legs. It was meant to be rough. My daughter broke it so I dumped it
     
  4. Someone I knew yonks ago spent a small fortune on furniture bought from Heals or similar (a porsh place) in Guildford.

    Had to say, it was quite striking and I did try to replicate it myself since - unsuccessfully.

    All very thick and solid and chunky with wrought iron latches and hinges. But the special feature was that the timber had been scorched with a blow lamp so's the softer parts of the wood grain were burnt away more, leaving the ridges from the harder parts of the growth rings raised up. A bit like a piece of softwood that's been left outside to dry in the sun for years - a smoothed-off ridged texture to it, as if the grain you see in Matt's table was 3-D.

    And absolutely charcoal black finish.

    Nice...
