Free Press Coffee House, MacArthur Blvd. live edge table

A year on, our live edge bar height table at Free Press Coffee House on MacArthur Blvd. in Springfield is looking as good as the day it was delivered. 

The owner, Jane Ann Petty, discovered us after we worked with her sister-in-law Sarah Petty. “She and her husband built a new studio for their architecture and photography business and had a beautiful island crafted by the team at Sangamon Reclaimed,” said Jane Ann who also owns Free Press Coffee House in Pittsfield and the William Watson Hotel in Pittsfield, Illinois. 

“I chose the live edge design because when Brian showed me the piece he explained how beautiful it would be.” 

The table takes center stage at the coffee house. The caramel, coffee, and chocolate tones of the smooth top and steel legs contrast the industrial concrete floor and surrounding interior, which includes stained glass windows, floral wallpaper, and white marble countertop. 

“I wanted something that would be a bit more organic: when you walk in and see the table it really warms the space.” 

We pride ourselves on our customer service and enjoy getting to know our clients, which include taking the time to explain the full range of products on offer and show them around our workshop. 

“The guys took me into the workshop to look at other pieces and we talked about different legs; walking me through every option. They made sure we had something that matched with the rest of the space. They are just great.

“I love the fact that Sangamon Reclaimed is locally owned and operated. I also love the fact Brian and his team support veterans and first responders through Flags for Heroes.

“Some people may assume it’s going to be very expensive to purchase items at Sangamon Reclaimed, but if you compare the cost of furniture in a regular store it is very reasonable. This is a piece of furniture you are going to buy once and keep forever. At Sangamon Reclaimed they stand behind what they do.”

The Redpath Project -Custom Live Edge Epoxy Table

This stunning live edge cherry sofa table turned out beyond our expectations. Handcrafted by Eric, Zack and Lars the live edge piece also includes an epoxy fill. 

Our skilled craftsmen first built a frame for the table to sit in, mixed the epoxy, poured in small amounts, and in between each pour used a blow torch to ensure no bubbles of air were trapped. 

Once the epoxy cured the table was they sanded down and sprayed with our table finish spray.

We know Chuck will enjoy the addition to his remodeled ‘man cave.’ We also finished the H steal base in oil rubbed bronze to match the color of the chairs in the basement.
