Reclaimed Mahogany and Some Old Tables

By August 19, 2010 furniture, reclaimed wood

I found a small supply of reclaimed mahogany today (4/4 or 1″ thick). Back in 1912 it was installed as bleacher seats at a school in New Mexico so I’d guess it to be 2-300 years old. It’s been planed down and has some signs of age, plus holes here and there from the old screws that held the seats down. I can’t wait to get it on a piece, maybe a desk?

I also bought old two tables. One is coffee table size, has a metal base and an ugly square top which I will be replacing probably with some of the mahogany. And my wife spotted this one, an 8′ long oak table probably from the 40s that was used in a school. It’s going to be gorgeous once we refinish it. It would be nice as a dining or work table.
