New Item! Beetle Kill Pine Stump Tables!

IMG_1109.JPG

We recently started to carry a new item in our inventory.  We now make custom beetle kill pine stump tables.  You can request a custom size and stain color or choose stumps from our inventory.  These stumps pictured have some bark left on the sides to make it darker.  We can also completely strip the stumps of bark to get the lighter colors underneath to match your homes' color scheme.  These stumps are a great addition to your homes' decor.  They can be used anywhere in your home and some people even like to put three next to each other at staggered heights for a unique coffee table in the middle of a room.  Our stumps are made from the same ponderosa pine we make all of our furniture from.  These stumps are not yet on our website so call us or email us for a quote or set up a time to come into the shop and see our inventory.

Another Weekend In The Mountains!

The crew at Colorado Tables spent another great weekend cleaning up the mountains of Colorado.   All the logs we use for our furniture are premium ponderosa pine which were standing dead.   That means they have died but are still standing erect.   These trees don’t have rotting like the ones on the ground and have amazing beetle kill pine with lots of character!   We logged and milled a little over one hundred blue stain pine trees this weekend to make sure we can keep up with our busy summer of making dining tables and other custom furniture.

Custom Seating To Match Any Table!

Here are some examples of our custom seating for the beetle kill pine tables.   We make chairs, stools and benches that match exactly to your blue stain pine table.   If your table has steel legs the seating will have matching steel legs.  Ask about seating ideas when talking to us about a table.  When you have a custom table you need to have custom chairs to compliment the table and  create the aesthetic you want in your home.   When you have a table in your dining room or kitchen people notice the chairs when they sit down.  Having seating that is comfortable and looks like a piece of art will have everyone talking about your new furniture.

Benefits of wood over plastic cutting boards and butcher blocks

When it comes to quality kitchenware, an end-grain butcher block or cutting board has many benefits over a plastic cutting board:

  • Less Bacteria 

Because wood absorbs water, it dries more quickly than plastic and gives bacteria less time to survive. 
The cuts in plastic cutting boards hold water and allow bacteria to breed.  End-grain wood re-seals itself and closes any cuts in the wood which prevents the growth of bacteria.  

  • Safety

Although plastic cutting boards are lighter weight and can be put in the dishwasher, the weight of a thick end-grain butcher block keeps the board from sliding or moving when you are cutting with a sharp knife.

  • Cleaning

Cleanup of a quality cutting board is a breeze! You just need some water (and a little soap if necessary) to wipe down your butcher block with a towel or a gentle sponge.

Although plastic cutting boards have their place in the kitchen, a quality wooden end-grain butcher block not only looks great, but is also safer and more sanitary.
