Restoration Hardware has some pieces that look like that made from reclaimed wood.

Not my style, but the Amish make tables like this. There are many local makers in the mid-Atlantic region who use reclaimed barn wood. Here's an example that is basically the exact same table made from reclaimed pine:

Here's a bigger one with an extension:

Standard charge for a 60"x36" with reclaimed pine and the turned legs is $530. Add another $80 for a thicker top. Add $150 for two 18" extensions. All in, it's under $800.

These tables are really common and can be customized quite cheaply. Again, not my style, but I'd buy from a local maker than a box store. Get exactly what you want and a lot cheaper.

Thanks. It would be for a fishing cottage on Georgian Bay, so I think it will fit very well. I'd prefer something that is a little rustic with intentional imperfections.

We kept one and had it restored. It has Wedgwood cameos and is quite over the top and silly, but kind of works where it is.

I just stumbled upon this guys furniture while doing some research on purple heart wood. I love it:



I think I'll do my next project in purple heart which is my version of the 'Index three low' book case.

Totally over the top but awesome nonetheless.

Ok looking for OPs on this kitchen. Please in advance don't do the it looks like
a NJ condo I have heard that before. Anything else is greatly appreciated.

like the look, don't know about the function. Is that the sink to the left of the range? Where is the fridge? Seems like the range is at the end of an alley.

Is that the fridge on the counter to the left? If so, that's a strange placement. Also, where is the oven?

Pro's: Range hood is cool. Stovetop seems to be nicely situated. L-shaped dining table/nook is neat looking. Con's: Drawers under stovetop? Bookcases instead of cabinets? Need to see placement of stove, fridge, and dishwasher to make a final distinction. At this point, I 'd have to vote thumbs down.

If the drawers have been designed correctly, it isn't a problem and, you can have all your spices, stove cleaning aid or utensils right where you need them.

I was wondering the same about the fridge, but with being a show kitchen it can be anywhere or not there at all, but based on looks and design I like it.

I actually like the general look of it all, but yet again it's a matter of functionality for me and that just doesn't work

It looks much better than a NJ condo.

I don't dislike it. I am not a fan of dark kitchens to begin with - I feel that it's a maintenance nightmare. Disregarding the practical aspect of storing china on a shelf, using an electric stove, and keeping that place clean - it looks good on picture.

I can't quite tell what is going on there. Is that an induction range for high speed boiling and super-controllable simmering paired with a couple of gas burners for non-liquid items?

Agree on the shelves and dark colors not working outside of a showroom though...Unless you never use your kitchen and have housekeeping staff, your shelves will never look that ordered. The dark color just seems like it is begging to look bad as it gets some usage-wear.

I think the issue with shelves is that everything needs to be dusted / washed all the time.
