A rustic sofa table can set the mood for your living room or create a garden atmosphere on a deck or patio. By making a sofa table with landscape timbers, you gain the rustic look while keeping costs low. Whether you're familiar with basic furniture construction or not, you should be able to make this simple coffee table in a single afternoon. Once your table is complete you can leave it in a natural condition or paint the table as desired. Contrast Preserved timber
The secret is sodium silicate, a mixture of sand and soda ash used since the 1800s in detergents and as an egg preservative. Lumber soaks in it under pressure, then is baked until an insoluble matrix of amorphous glass which hardens and essentially "shrink wraps" the wood fibers throughout and fills the micro-channels with molecular-thin, layers of glass.
The result is a material that is many times stronger than composite products because the glassy portion parallels the grain of wood, greatly increasing strength and ensuring that nails, screws, and fasteners hold more firmly. Because TimberSIL does not rely upon copper and quaternary as fungicides like conventional pressure treated woods, the product is non-corrosive to nails and other fasteners.

In appearance, the transparency of glass allows the properties of wood to show through while allowing TimberSIL to be painted or stained like wood. If used outdoors and left unpainted or unstained, TimberSIL will eventually gray in the sun but with minimal checking and warping like conventional pressure treated wood.
Ideal for decking applications, TimberSIL is also designed for interior and exterior, above-ground and in-ground use. TimberSIL is available in dimensional sizes for framing, decking, balusters, and siding.
At Crossroads Recycled Lumber we are greatly concerned about the sustainability (or unsustainability) of the American lifestyle as well as the intelligent use of our natural resources. The way we have harvested and built over the past 200 years has come to a head, endangering our very existence on this earth. Now all of us in the U.S., and our worldly neighbors, have to develop wise ways of living, making less waste and pollution. The more quickly and sustainably we develop these ways, the better off we will all be.
