Salvaged Cherry Sparkle

Jim Thompson's avatar Jim Thompson

This piece is a contemporary table built completely from salvaged materials. It features a reclaimed cherry hardwood top with an eco-friendly clear finish. The cherry is from an urban felled tree found in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The base of the table is a vintage bass (drum) that was salvaged from a school along Lake Michigan. It has an original gold sparkle finish that both blends and contrasts with the cherry top . The drum shell was cut in half and stacked to form a distinct arched base. This curved form, along with the straight line cherry top, creates a sleek and modern look.
