SFJ1

We were in the process of slicing beams and squaring out boards (getting smaller boards with 4 flat and true faces) when we noticed one that was trying to stand out among the rest.
This slat was already square all around and the faces were mostly clean but on one end there was a small crack with the original white stain on it that was standing tall no matter how much we thicknessed it down.
I guess at some stage we stopped trying to turn it into a “swan” and gave it a break. The original idea was to make a perfectly flat tabletop surface but for some reason we decided to spin the design a notch and aim the spotlight at that rebel board.
We went ahead with the planned overall build, a large plank that stands on its folded ends (instead of the conventional 4 legs and frame), which would be tucked in a bit to allow for seating on the sides.
The thing is we left the board with the white crack right in the middle of the top and painted the whole inner backface of the table to match with it!
All 3 parts that make the table are dismountable for transport.

    STORY

    Around April 2019 we got the chance to access this monumental Baroque House from the XVIII century, at nr 11 Calle San Francisco Javier. The property’s backyard was adjacent to the Hospital de Mujeres. It is the most notorious institution in this area of town and thereupon this city quarter was named after it.

    The building is one of the most spectacular ones we have visited so far and luckily we got the chance to get some professional pics during our 2 visits. We were able to salvage up to 60 beams in sound condition in a varied set of formats and colours.

    The main façade of the building is a 7 axis composition with a centered foyer. Cornices and fabulous imposts carved in stone add a classy touch.

    As we enter the place we walk into an imposing patio paved in Tarifa stone with a water reservoir well (moorish Aljibe) in mint condition placed in the center of it.

    The arched staircase takes us to a circular gallery that is supported by a sturdy beam structure and looks into the patio in each of the 3 levels. Hallways paved in marble, artistic moulding decorated ceiling vaults and abundant ornamental features on the walls are a clear sign of the sophistication of this noble delling.
