It takes a creative mind to tackle the various projects that come through our shop, working from a rotating stock of unique salvaged material where you never get the same thing twice. Each finished piece is truly one-of-a-kind, just like the folks that make them, and Parker Burrer is one of those guys!
While Parker makes some of the most inspiring tables, chairs, and doors you are likely to lay eyes on, he is also interested in anything else a customer might want to throw his way. In this case, he was approached by a commercial customer to build a one of a kind conference table for their office, and boy did he deliver!
Spalted Pecan is not typically a commercially available wood. It comes from trees that have fallen in storms, that have been cut as non-producing trees in pecan orchards, or that have been cut because of road or building construction. This wood is rare. Which makes owning a beautifully crafted piece like this a treasure.
Joining two large live edge slabs can be tedious work and usually requires at least two sets of hands. The crew usually works together to put the slabs together.
Fast forward a few weeks and you can see the amazing transformation these two live edge spalted pecan slabs have made! Parker decided on a “rustic meets modern” look by adding hand crafted metal legs. The result is simply beautiful.
If you are interested in ordering a custom piece, you can contact Parker directly at Parker@ecorelics.com. Ask about anything! He’s glad to be working in the only shop in town with a viewing area for customers so he can answer your questions and satisfy your curiosities in person or through email.
We can custom build your furnishings for your next project, for any size home or office space and have built custom creations for retail shops, local craft breweries, and even large commercial projects. Materials used can be totally up to you or you can leave it up to our craftsmen’s imagination. We can use just about anything to create your piece, from salvaged live edge slabs (as in this case), old reclaimed barnwood, antiques, vintage restored tools, cool old reclaimed or salvaged metalwork, or just about anything you can find in the warehouse.
