1 of 2 – Limited Edition – Ferguson TE20 Transmission Table
Made from parts of the infamous Ferguson TE20, more commonly known as the grey fergie tractor. TE20 tractors were designed and produced between 1946 and 1956 and were icons of worldwide agriculture, so these Transmission Tables hold some considerable history and they are ready to continue sharing their story with you.
These two tables reference back to the bones of Metal & Dust, coming from an agricultural farming background, so they have a place in our heart. And yes, we almost think it to be sacrilege to cut up such a classic and make them into furniture too, but we can assure you that these axles and drum brakes were found rotting away in a field looking sorry for themselves long before we got to them (we’re not sure where the rest of it went!). The glass tops have both been recycled from old tables which were destined for landfill, they have the odd scar and tell the odd story, which is what we love.
We wanted these tables to reflect the basic, rugged nature and utilitarian design of the original source, so the whole table is designed to bolt together and come apart in its most simple form. The reclaimed glass table top has been saved from the skip and been UV bonded onto a custom adapter ring, made to bolt down to the main pedestal. The bearing race has been stamped with our label, and we love it.
There are two of these beautiful tables available. Slight variations between the two make them one of a kind and not to be reproduced, they will be continue to hold their bespoke label.
