This historic, giant, one-of-a-kind, cedar table was commissioned and handcrafted in the late 1980s.
It's made from an old growth cedar tree, estimated to be 800 years old, that was felled by J&J Shake near the Hoh River.
The freshly cut single slab of cedar was stored to dry for three years, in preparation for crafting the table top.
The two solid wood legs were cut from the same tree.
The 5 x 22' table top has a live edge and 5 layers of Glascoat, giving it a very smooth finish.
Photographs and a newspaper article verify the provenance of this 600+ pound table.
It has never been sold but the time has come for someone else to enjoy and preserve this piece of history.
If you would like to be the caretaker of this grandiose relic, please make an offer.

Note: For those who scoff at cutting an old growth cedar to make a table, please know that during that time in logging history, most of these trees were destined to be cedar shake shingles.
