Reclaimed African Hardwood Side Grain tables and counter tops are made from recycled industrial shipping pallets. The pallets include several species of wood. Colors range from creamy whites, golden yellows and amber to mahogany and various brown tones. Grain can be straight, interlocked or wavy, and have high luster and figure. Reclaimed marks include nail holes, staining and surface checking. Side grain tabletops are built with the edge grain facing up in parallel strips typically measuring between 5/8" and 1". May include staggered butt joints.
