The unique wood top of this console table draws one to it, but it is the deep gouges, marks and distress that makes this rustic table so unique. Originally, this was likely a work table for a butcher or carpenter which now reveals generations of use. Deep gouges,old dried worm holes and aged stains add to the depth of character. Enlage photos to appreciate the lighter strips of wood added to the long sides creating a two-tone effect. The table has been restored and waxed, so it is strong, stable and ready for use. Measurements listed are of widest parts, which may be the legs vs. the top.
