Another project made from very old recovered shed wood (early 1900’s farm). The wood in the legs was part of the roof, you can see the holes where the tin was nailed to it. We tried to minimize any exposed cuts so we actually broke some of the boards under the top to give them a rough edge. You can see the sawmill marks in most of the wood in either one or two directions. The organic edges on the top are the outer suface of the tree. Unfortunately when we washed and scrubed the piece (had to be done) we lost some of the sawmill mark contrast that the dirt provided.

That’s cool. We both posted rustic table within a day of each other. We must have been on the same page. Good job! I love old wood.

We have a local buissness that tears down really old houses mainly from the new orleans area and sells all of it (wood, hinges, doors..). They are insanely proud of it. I am fortunate to have a few deteriorating old farm buildings on our place. My son claimed this piece for his room.
