I delivered this table and bench last nite.  The client is a good friend of mine and she drove to Ventura to find the perfect boards. They are scaffolding planks. They were covered with masonry dust and a little paint and are beautifully weathered. We built this little chunky table out of them after we rinsed and scrubbed the planks with a stiff brush.

It’s nice and solid. We sanded it just right without taking any of the weather away…the finish is paste wax.

About an hour after I got home she sent me this picture…One more happy owner of a Chris Karlson original…
