We recently finished this patchwork kitchen work table for a client. The top features a mix of wood species including hickory, ash, redwood, doug fir and pine.

We left at 6am in our rented U-Haul and headed down to Orange, CA for some more reclaimed wood. After breakfast, we drove over to the yard and started making our way through piles of wood that has been salvaged from around Southern California. Most of this beautiful lumber would have been tossed into the dumpster and sent to the landfill if it wasn't for environmentally friendly folks who save it, one house and business at a time. Some of the old growth doug fir measured 18" wide and 30' long! Six hours after we started staring down each individual piece of wood, we had another van full.
