Tomato Head TN Wall Mounts

The wood is reclaimed flooring from the quintessential Knoxvillian eatery, The Tomato Head. Most people don't know how important this restaurant was (and is) to Knoxville's urban revitalization. They were pioneers, invading the downtown space with great food at a time when downtown was little more than an eyesore. I was lucky enough to live right next door to the restaurant when they renovated the floor. It was a long night in the dumpster fishing out the good pieces. Another long night to remove the nails. This wood has the most character of anything I have had the privilege of working with. It is very old, I only wish it could talk so it could tell me of the old happenings of Knoxville
