We’ve created quite a few (what we thought, anyway) impressive pieces of furniture of the years that combined live edge wood with industrial materials like gas pipe and concrete. As proud as we were of our work, we’d happily trade any of those pieces in for something from Strands of History because their pieces are made with actual parts from the Golden Gate Bridge. This is some legitimate process porn, so we’re going to get into the details. In 2006, 11-foot pieces of the original Golden Gate Bridge suspender ropes–cables generally refers to wires laid in parallel fashion like the main cables of the bridge–were acquired by an individual who would eventually become a business partner in Strands of History, a company that has been turning these pieces of the bridge into pieces of art and furniture with a continuously evolving process for the past few years. This table was built in collaboration with Bushey Ironworks and Roundwood Furniture. It features a wooden top made with 80+ year old Claro walnut fused with legs made with almost century old suspender ropes from the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s stunning in every way.
