Trestle Bench - Iron Buff
These trestle tables are similar to the trestle tables from the RVHA collection, except that they are custom made and we have modified the designs. This "Iron Buff" version is made from birdseye or curly maple and is stained using a mixture made from soaking steel wool and iron shavings in regular vinegar. The mixture is a powerful stain that provides an almost iridescent finish. You simply wipe it on and then wipe it off. You can also specific a variant of this piece that uses aluminum pieces embedded in the wood, like a prosthetic. The design reflects the notion that these "imperfections" add character and beauty, like in people. Finally, these tables are branded with Eleanor's Val-Kill brand, marking them as originals.
