A client was brought to me who had a number of old barn beams on their property. They wanted to make a simple sofa table with some nesting benches. JGM, Inc provided the bases for the benches and table. The barn wood was very rough initially, and it was delicate work to find a balance that made it pleasant to the touch without removing the patina of age the wood had acquired over the years.
The benches store neatly underneath the table when not in use. Small furniture pads hidden under the feet ensure they are easy to move around.

The character of the original beams is what makes this project really stand out.
