This table came to us with two large burn holes in it. What to do?
So many options:
-Do we repair with pieces of wood, maybe in contrast to the hoop pine top?
-Do we insert pieces of marble or granite?
-No! Let’s cut up some ancient rusty circular saw blades and place them flush with the pine top, buff the metal up and penetrol it, so the finish is a dark pitted patina against an oiled old pine top with old worn painted base.
Your hot pots can go straight onto the steel inserts for serving - no more burnt top for this table. The wood and metal combo goes so well together with the painted white legs.
A beautiful functional piece which we have restored from the scrap heap.
