Reclaimed Chestnut Coffee Table

I just finished this coffee table and love the finished product. The chestnut used for the table top is over 100 years old and very hard to find. In 1904 there was a fungus that destroyed millions of chestnut trees. By 1950 it is estimated that more than 4 billion trees were destroyed. The fungus still exists and prevents chestnut trees from getting larger than 6″ in diameter. Needless to say this piece is pretty great!
