Product Family

Reclaimed Table creates the finest tables, paneling, and slabs from reclaimed and salvaged wood. Additionally, with our own in-house metal shop, we create remarkable bases from steel and other metals that truly complement the beauty of our tables.

Every species of wood with which Reclaimed Table works has its own unique set of characteristics, including coloration, graining, and strength. When selecting the best wood species for your specific application, knowledge of these characteristics is critical to ensure the end product will look beautiful today and perform well in the future. Reclaimed Table sources primarily North American hardwoods that have been reclaimed from a prior use, salvaged due to a natural event like a flood, or in selected instances, received from FSC certified providers.

Ambrosia Maple

Ambrosia maple comes from hard maple trees and regular soft maple trees that have been infested by Ambrosia Beetles. The beetles bore into the trees and create a network of tunnels and short galleries that are called cradles. A fungus that leaves blue, brown, and gray streaks in a decorative patchwork accompanies each cradle and the adjacent wood. This gives the wood a distinctive character unique to ambrosia maple. With maple, the light toned sapwood is generally preferred over the darker heartwood. Its straight grain with a fine closed structure and light hue makes it a popular choice for contemporary applications.



Beech sapwood appears creamy white, while the heartwood ranges from a pink hue to dark reddish brown. This species shows very little sapwood and has a fine grain with a characteristic fleck. It has a good workability and is noted for its excellent ability for steam bending. Beech historically was readily available and used in fabricating large beams and posts. Today reclaimed beech may be very “wormy” or riddled with worm holes. Properly treated, Beech can provide outstanding variation in character and graining.



The heartwood of American cherry varies from rich caramel to reddish brown, while the sapwood ranges from creamy white to a pinkish cast. This cherry hue begins as a lighter color, then darkens with sunlight exposure and is considered one of the most photo sensitive domestic species. The rich depth in color and the fine uniform graining pattern really makes this wood unique. Typically harvested in the Northeastern U.S., primary uses for cherry include paneling, cabinetry, and furniture.



Hickory is sometimes called “America’s muscle wood” because of its strength and hardness. It is no coincidence that Andrew Jackson’s nickname was “Old Hickory.” Hickory is revered for its strength and durability and is considered the hardest domestic species. The heartwood in hickory varies widely from pale hues to a dark leathery tan, also called calico, while the sapwood ranges from a creamy white to a light reddish brown. It is a popular choice for a rustic appearance due to its wide color range and course texture.



Poplar is one of the softest hardwoods. It is commonly used in trim and millwork applications because of its availability, workability, and ability to take paint with a resulting smooth finish. The sapwood ranges from a creamy white to a pale yellow, while the heartwood varies from a yellowish brown to an olive green. The olive green will darken over time to a more brownish cast. This wide color variation adds quite a bit of interest. The fine grain and earthy tones add to its “green” quality.


Red Oak

Red Oak is often the hardwood species that is used as the standard for comparison for other woods. It grows abundantly and has good availability. One of the tougher hardwoods, it is commonly used in applications including barn siding and structure, fencing, and industrial buildings. Red oak’s sapwood ranges from a pinkish tan to light brown, and the heartwood varies from a medium to reddish brown. It has a relatively straight and open grain with a course texture. This open grain allows it to easily accept stain in a wide variety of colors. When reclaimed, this open grain allows for the deep penetration of oils, stains, and paints which can add to its rustic and unique character.



Sycamore, it is believed, got its name from its peeling bark making it appear “sick.” The heartwood is a light brown tinged with red, while the sapwood ranges from a creamy white to a pinkish cast. This wood has a fine closed grain with an interlocking pattern sometimes referred to as lace wood. Sycamore’s toughness in veneer thicknesses makes it ideal for woven baskets and food containers. In thicker sections, sycamore makes solid drawer sides and is suitable for end-grain butcher blocks. The wood’s resistance to abrasion also makes it good for pallet skids, and its ability to take shocks makes it suitable for railroad ties. However, it is a relatively unstable wood, susceptible to significant movement in “plank” form. When salvaged, it is often used for slab design.



Walnut (or in this country, primarily Black Walnut) is considered by many to be the optimal cabinet wood. Its dark color, tight grain, and balance of strength and workability make it highly desired. The heartwood of walnut ranges from tan to dark chocolate brown, while the sapwood varies from a pale yellow grey to a creamy white. Walnut also oxidizes and can lighten over time with exposure to Ultra-Violet rays. The grain typically runs straight and smooth, but can produce some irregular wavy or curly pattern. The contrast in color and gorgeous luster make this species a popular choice among both consumers and woodworkers. When reclaimed or salvaged, it is an excellent choice for tables, paneling, and slabs, especially when a contrast between sleek grain and unusual character is desired.


White Oak

Our senses tell us oak is nothing more than a coarse textured wood with showy rays and a harsh acidic scent. Yet there’s something about oak that causes most of us to think of it in human terms: bold, strong, and dependable. White oak differs from red oak in that it has a slower growth rate, producing smaller-diameter pores and a more compact cellular structure. This gives the wood great strength and a high resistance to splitting. White Oak’s rays tend to be larger, tying the vertically oriented cells together and giving the wood greater resistance to compression. White Oak’s durability and strength make it superior for uses such as bridge beams and railroad ties, and its low permeability to moisture make it ideal for wine barrels and other cooperage applications. The sapwood in white oak ranges from a greenish to darker tan and the heartwood varies from a light to dark brown. The tannins or resins in this species lends to its greenish cast. It was especially popular during the Arts and Crafts movement and maintains its charm to this day. When reclaimed, its tighter grain pattern, figuration, and occasional unfilled knots, surface checks, and nail and fastener holes give white oak a great range of character.
