WoodSwan's Walnut table springs from a tree section rescued after a human caused fire. Handcrafted steel legs lend an upscaled minimal industrial vibe to the timber with charred corners still evident. This table serves as a night stand at bedside or end table next to sofa or chair. The stylish functional table can also serve as a compelling record player stand.

What's the story? A power pole transformer malfunctioned and started a ground fire that burned through a glorious grove of native nogal walnut trees growing along Bonito Creek, in New Mexico. Several of the trees died as a result. The landowner was cutting the trees down for firewood. We struck a deal, purchasing the trees to keep them from being burned. (Gotta sequester that carbon when we can!)

The history of the Bonito Creek, south of Lincoln New Mexico, has been widely documented as a gathering spot for Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County Regulators of old west fame. Yup, he supposedly stopped to water his horse in this grove of walnut trees. We like to imagine that he could have caught a siesta under this tree. Count the rings in this piece to see how old the tree was back in Billy's days :)

Here you have a beautiful expression of what was once a glorious tree, kiln-dried, leveled, sanded smooth (10 different grades) and finished with coats of oil and then sealed with two coats of hard matte wax. We've added our own steel legs for a contemporary look.

This table is a one-of-a-kind "conversation piece." Just think about it... they were going to burn it!! With your purchase, you "adopt" and share in our rescue by making it part of your functional home experience.

    My husband and I purchased our cake stand from this shop 5 years ago for our wedding, and we just purchased a stump from them for our anniversary. Both are outstanding, and I love that the wood is salvaged. The inscriptions are perfect as well. We really appreciate the care and workmanship put into our orders- we will treasure the pieces always! Thank you!
