Once you have your belting ready and your copper cut its time to start assembly.

This is how your pieces will fit together:

Like I said in the video, I always dry fit everything, just to make sure that it looks the way I want. Once you’ve done that you can start epoxying things together (just remember to add your slings as you are assembling!)

To finish the top of the table I used my favorite clear coat. Varathane’s Triple Thick.

We love architectural salvage! But sometimes making something old fit in something new can be a challenge. 

Over the years we've worked to install various old architectural salvage items in our home. From transom windows to doors and hinges to locks, using old materials in your renovation not only adds character you just can't get from new products, it can also make a renovation look appropriate in an old home, like it's always been that way. 

For example, our entry hall before and after, with reproduction mouldings, a salvaged leaded glass hardware, and minor reconfiguration.
