John James' Reclaimed Benchmaster Dining Table

 
 

It all started when...

We found a beautiful pair of reclaimed cast iron 15-ton Benchmaster press legs. We knew they could hold their own weight and so much more once we built them a top. First, the 185lbs of Douglas fir that became the table top, reclaimed from an old mill in New Westminster. Second, the incredible potluck “orphans” thanksgiving dinner, which was the purpose for which this that table was built. Third, their new home, The Haus That John Built, John James that is.
