We have only five more tables tops made with this wood available. Eighty-plus year old suspender ropes paired with 80+ year old walnut.

We are proud to partner with two outstanding groups of craftsmen on these pieces; Aaron and Jesse Bushey of Bushey Ironworks, and Andy Cline (known by all as “Cline”) and his team at Roundwood Furniture. These two groups have created inspired functional art for decades. We feel privileged to be able to contribute to their work and to help incorporate these historical ropes into completely unique pieces for your home or business.
These authentic historical suspender ropes from one of the world’s most famous bridges are a unique medium to create artwork for public spaces, building plazas, entrance ways and lobbies. Strands of History is proud to collaborate with metal artist and sculptor, Matt Lund, founder of Metal Matrix. Matt has worked in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area for over 15 years in metal and fire art, original furniture, and metal creations for commercial and residential installations.
