Reclaimed Harvest Table
A Harvest Table features four corner legs and skirting. By definition a harvest table has a narrow, long table with hinged drop leaves.
We offer the classic design with the selection of six leg styles to compliment a city or country designed home.
A trestle table is composed of two or three trestle supports linked by a horizontal board connecting the bases underneath the table top. With origins in the middle ages, this simple style remained the most common Western form of table until the 16th century and it remains a popular form of dining table today.
The Timber Barn offers three base styles from rustic to French-country to suit your style. Additionally, the trestle table offers those seated more leg space around each corner.
A pedestal table is supported by a wide central column and attached to a set of feet. The base allows people to arrange chairs and dinner guests without needing to worry about conflicts with the table legs. Pedestal tables come in a range of shapes, sizes, and styles to coordinate with an assortment of room designs.
The Timber Barn offers this style with the opportunity for a rectangular or round top and bottom selection.
Live Edge Table
Live edge or natural edge table is a style built where the carpenter incorporates the natural edge of the wood into the design of the piece. Live edge furniture often incorporates gnarly, salvaged wood that is not traditionally used in conventional woodworking.
There are unique challenges involved in working with this type of wood, and several methods the Timber Barn uses to develop a live edge table. This can include either leaving the natural holes and cracks in the wood or filling them with resins.MORE INFORMATION

Wood Species Selection
The Timber Barn crafts our tables from reclaimed and rustic lumber from southern Ontario farms. When a barn comes down or is refurbished, some might see the old wood as little more than scrap. We take the historic barn wood and craft it into beautiful, solid tables. They are not just beautiful, but a better choice for the environment.
These photos represent some of our most popular wood types with popular stains. While we are able to adjust the colour (with optional stain) to suit your home we recommend you visit our showroom to get an accurate sense of what you are envisioning.

QUALITY FINISHING COMES FIRST
We offer a few choices when it comes to finishing your table, from our signature matte epoxy coating to a food-grade tung oil finish. Depending on the look, desired durability, or intended use of your piece of furniture, we can treat the reclaimed wood in different ways.
We can also tint or stain your wood to better suit the colours in your home.
SMOOTH AND LEVEL MATTE EPOXY FINISH
A smooth and level finish with no variance in depth, the wood is thickly coated in 100% solids epoxy and a durable matte topcoat.
SIGNATURE MATTE EPOXY FINISH
A smooth finish with minor variances in depth, the wood is coated in 100% solids epoxy and a durable matte topcoat.
RUSTIC MATTE EPOXY FINISH
The same characteristics as our signature finish, but with variances in depth due to a thinner coating of epoxy.
A durable, sprayed topcoat that emphasizes the rustic texture of the wood, while remaining waterproof and stain-resistant.
TUNG OIL & BEESWAX FINISH
Created for kitchen islands, this is an organic, food-safe oil made from the tung nut. This finish leaves the wood exposed and adds a dark red tint.
WHAT’S OLD IS NEW
We make our tables from local lumber, reclaimed from barns that are taken down or repaired. Normally this wood is considered little more than scrap, but we take care to clean, dry, form and preserve the wood in beautiful, hand-made dining tables.
DESIGNED FOR YOU
Your new dining table can change the tone of your home, choosing the right style is the first step. We have five main styles, each with variations that can change the look from modern to country. And because all our tables are made-to-order, we can make additional changes or customizations to ensure you get the table of your dreams.
MORE THAN A TABLE
Your dining room is the place where memories are made over dinner, homework, and passing the gravy. That’s why we craft our tables by hand from durable materials, like reclaimed wood and environmentally friendly coatings. Your table ensures durability, but it won’t harm you or the environment in the building process.
Easy To Maintain
Our topcoat protects your table with superior durability and wearability. With exceptional resistance to heat, moisture, and household chemicals, your table will last generations.
EASY TO CLEAN
Our tables are waterproof, making them are easy to clean with just soap and water. Stains and grime just don’t stick to the surface. Fabric cloths won’t catch since the wood is protected by the epoxy finish.
The epoxy finish used on our tables seals in the wood and dries completely waterproof. Your table is protected from spills, stains, and marks. You’ll never have to use a coaster again.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY EPOXY
We only zero-VOC epoxy to seal our tables. We are committed to using the safest products for the environment, our employees, and most importantly–your family.
We use a soft-gloss, matte sheen topcoat on our tables. This allows you to better see the details of the historic reclaimed wood, and doesn’t show as many marks as a high-gloss finish.
SMOOTH TO THE TOUCH
We flood the surface of pressure washed reclaimed barn floors with 100% solids epoxy. This fills all fissures and cracks in the wood with a clear, solid finish. It’s both practical and visually stunning.
More than the environment, we focus on using green coatings for the health and safety of your family, as well as our employees.
