A restored and sturdy vintage work table said to have been originally used as a candy making counter. It’s a nice height for a kitchen island and there is room on the ends for pulling up some stools. The large drawer is unique, as it can be opened from either side. The drawer has dividers on the inside and old decorative cast iron pulls. This piece is made from hard maple and has a great warm color. It has seen many years of use and there are lots of dents and dings, especially around the turned legs. The butcher block style turned legs are bolted to the frame for strength, giving it warm and functional farmhouse style.
We were not able to save the old top, so it now has a reclaimed wood top made from some loose laid mow boards we salvaged from an old barn. This top is also hard maple with many of the original mill marks. However, the finish is durable and smooth, suitable for use in a kitchen. The light spots seen in the photo of the top are reflections from the sun.
The top is 6 ft long and 41 ½ inches wide. The overall height is 36 inches. The top extends 12 inches on each end. If you would like to use stools, the measurement from the floor to the bottom of the top is 33 inches. If necessary for moving, the top can be removed (unscrewed) from the base.
