Another Old Growth Creation by Nolan Wells

This table was created by Nolan Wells out of old growth Douglas Fir that came out of a Church deconstruction project. Kimball Ave. Church was built in Logan Sq. in 1901. When the building started sinking, the congregation opted for deconstruction.

The way he left the rough sawn edge turned out beautifully. It captures the age of the lumber because you can see the saw mill markings. Thanks for the photos Nolan!
