After several prototypes,the first farm/work table has been delivered to a client. Built using all reclaimed materials,it’s modeled after the work tables we inherited with our building,the old Star Laundry. The old finishes are retained wherever possible and the tops,made from old siding or decking,one inch thick boards worn smooth and finished with wax,they have a great look and are practical,too!
The Farm Table
Our first table client is a wonderful local bakery,Back in the Day,on Bull Street in Savannah’s Victorian District. The owners,Griff and Cheryl Day were looking for a table to go with a ten foot long antique bench for the cafe area of the bakery (great sandwiches!) and admired the old work tables in our shop. So we built this ten foot long table that fits just right. Here are some more images of the table and it’s story.

This is the historical Adams Hall at Savannah State University,which is one of the older buildings still at the school. We were assigned the honor of preserving the historical value and image of this outstanding structure! The rooms in Adams Hall are 40 X 100 and the vaulted ceilings are 25 feet. We restored the plaster,painted,reconstructed all the windows including the arch tops,replaced the missing eyebrows based on the originals,the cornices,north entry,and we are currently working on restructuring the iron pediments.
