Made three of these actually. All are made from reclaimed pine from a garage attached to a house made in 1870. The boards were painted red on one side and I left that paint on them but it is on under side of top. Legs were made from the rafters and studs of building.
Drawers are made from a piece of wood that was up in rafters and I think it was birch.
Put one coat of oil based varathane and then let it dry for a few days and then finished with Enduro-Var Water-Based Varnish from lee valley. It is designed to over coat oil based finishes.This way I get the nice look from oil.
