Right out of the industrial revolution, the heavy iron table base was once a machine base at the CRANE MFG. BUILDERS LAKEPORT, NH. The table is topped with a 54” piece of 3/8“ pencil polished glass and would make a beautiful dining or small conference table.
This table top is created from one of the most unique foundry molds we’ve ever seen. The top wheel is in a beautiful honey color with round black wood shapes, which are evenly spaced all around. We think it was used to move cans through a cannery. We even kept the original tag and on one of the spokes.
The top wheel is in a beautiful honey color with round black wood shapes, which are evenly spaced all around. The smaller mold beneath it is an interesting star-like shape and honey colored as well.
The two combined together gives an effect of the looking into the inner workings of a large clock or machine.

Here's a cool table I created by layering foundry molds on top of each other than bolting them to a strong industrial table base.
