Reclaimed wood console table


Please bear with me here because I don't know a lot about wood or construction. I want to make a small entryway table for our apartment, about 40" long x 16" deep. The top would be a "slab" of finished reclaimed wood (because it's gorgeous) and the legs would be 4 hairpin legs. Here is a photo that approximates what I'm after, except this is a bench, and mine would be a taller console table:

(Sorry, somehow I couldn't copy and paste the pic here) :-)

Longleaf Lumber is in Cambridge, MA, right near me, and they specialize in reclaimed lumber - mostly flooring but their web site says they also provide pieces for furniture, etc. I feel a bit funny, going in and asking for a piece of reclaimed wood that small - does anyone know if they do this kind of thing, and how much it would cost to have them make a piece for me? I can easily get the hairpin legs and my handy husband (!) could attach them to the top. . . the point is, I don't want to spend $600+ to have someone make the entire table for me. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

The people who would know if they do that sort of thing would be the people who might do that sort of thing.
Why not just call them?
