Gerringong | Australia
Trestle table made from recycled door and floorboards. The trestle table was made at our workshop in Gerringong NSW using an old door for the table top and recycled floorboards for the trestle legs. The door was sanded back so that it was nice and smooth and to also remove some of the flaky paintwork leaving behind a gorgeous mottled colouring. The floorboards were cut to size, sanded, joined and oiled.
We had wanted to make some trestle tables using old doors and floorboards for some time and the perfect opportunity came up when Retrash commissioned us to make some tables out of recycled materials for the Eco Expo (sustainability expo) held in Sydney in 2014. We made five tables for an outdoor pop-up bar purpose built for the Expo. We have since loaned them out for other community events as well including vintage market stalls and community fetes. People really love them! We always get so much feedback from people who admire them. We also have some for sale.
