Barn Siding Table

What started out as a pile of old Double Dutch 4” Barn Siding and a Red Oak 2×4 slowly came together into a small table. Mortise and tenon work by hand tools, boards planned smooth with hand planes, legs turned on an old lathe that hadn’t been used in almost two years. Shelf stops to allow cords for an Xbox to tuck behind the table when it is next to a wall. Minwax “Maple” stain. Glaze by Krylon, due to the rough handling it will see holding all that Xbox gear. Last two photos show how it looked before the finish was applied.

Recycled all the lumber used in this project.

That came together nicely, Bandit. The finish looks pretty good from here. I’m sure the X-Box will enjoy its new home.

Nice project, Bandit. Especially nice to see how it all came together.

Excellent job sir. Lots of hard work went into it.

Well I tell you partner, the old barn never looked so good in its previous life. Now can you do the same for my mother in law?

I may be good, but I’m no miracle worker…..

Thanks for looking in. Table is now in it’s new spot, fully loaded with xbox stuff, and a flat screen tv. New owner ( son and grandson) gave both a thumbs up, and a high five.

Cost of the table? NADA, other than any spare time…....
