furniture from reclaimed lumber

we've been making furniture from reclaimed lumber for many years now.  i am in the process of collecting the photos of this furniture in one place and have created this slideshow where you can see some of them.
here are just a few of my favorites ...
the 'bridges' bench   .. made for the 2010 bennington museum show 'state of craft: fifty years of crafts in vermont'.  the theme of the show was 'continuity' and this piece involved 4 members of our family.
one of our early chestnut projects ... it was a project for a friend, and it involved this table, 
a gateleg pull up extension table, and 8 chairs
i put my feet up on this one every day.  it was an early collaboration involving me and kit, and our metal working son sam
part of our series 'empire deluxe' ... reclaimed chestnut and vermont marble
and who doesn't love a nice post and beam custom pool table

That's really cool! I especially like the pool table. I have been wanting to make some of my home furniture. You really set the bar high here! I hope I can make such a beautiful piece.
