CONCRETE, STEEL, GLASS, WOOD-
Four of the most recycled products on the planet.
Toro Tables makes extensive use of reclaimed steel, wood, glass and found objects. All are recyclable materials, giving each piece a history. Our supply of reclaimed materials comes from many sources, including a large collection from a disbanded solar array in the Sacramento area. With the help of a small sawmill, reclaimed wood products such as old railroad ties, large building beams, hardwood warehouse pallets, and downed trees and stumps are reborn. Cut, sized, planed and sanded; they are put to use in attractive, quality tables, each with a history.
Some purport they are saving the planet by using reclaimed or recycled products. Very admirable sentiments. Toro Tables uses reclaimed materials because it makes sense, because these components lend charm and character to the finished piece, and because working with reclaimed products is stimulating and challenging.
