This unique Rutledge style farm table has deep southern roots and charm. Hidden beneath the wax finish are decades of history. The signature Rutledge legs were reclaimed from an 1800's farm house in Prattville, AL and are littered with evidence of hand forged nails. The Heart Pine legs support an apron made with barn siding found in upstate South Carolina with remnants of the white paint providing perfect contrast. The tabletop was made with reclaimed floor boards from an old tobacco mill in North Carolina with hints of tobacco stains still showing.
Accompanied with a matching bench, this farm table would make a great addition to any Lowcountry home and is guaranteed to be the only one of its kind.
Note from the Maker -
"One of my favorite things about working with reclaimed wood is to imagine the story behind it. Many hand forged nails were removed from the heart pine used to make these legs. These nails were handmade by either a local blacksmith or the home owner. Making nails was such tedious work and expensive, that often times when farmers moved to a new settlement, they would burn down the house just to pick up the nails to take with them. Luckily for us, this one was spared!"
