The 2 inch tops are made from reclaimed barn floor boards, also called threshing floor boards. The perpendicular bread edge boards on the ends ensure authentically distressed barn board edges on all sides. Any hand-hewn beams come from the structure of an old barn. Legs are made from original barn wind brace beams, which support the large, structural beams in a pioneer barn. All 1" thick material we use is from an old barn's interior grainery room, also called grainery boards.
