table talk

August 6, 2012


When Atlanta restaurateur Anne Quatrano wanted some tables built, she turned to her cousin and craftsman Frederick Knight.

Using thick, reclaimed heart pine and iron from an old cotton mill, Knight built harvest tables and benches for Star Provisions, a foodie favorite in Atlanta. For Abattoir, he made patio tables from the salvaged wood.

Knight, a UGA grad who was in the building materials business for 30 years, learned from his grandfather how to work with wood and iron. Those early lessons paid off.

At his shop in Cartersville, the carpenter/blacksmith builds custom tables (six to 16 feet) and benches, but also beds and bookcases from Georgia heart pine or maple – and iron.

With its industrial chic style, each piece is unique — thanks to the dents, dings and nail holes in the antique wood.

Prices range from about $1,500 for a three-by-eight-foot table to $300 for a seven-foot bench.
