This was a fun little project that I made in my high school shop class. I made It the last month and a half of 2014. It is made out of cedar that is over a hundred years old. The wood came from my family farm. They were cut down and milled into planks. They were payed out over a summer to naturally dry and then put into the loft of a barn.

The top is made out of two pieces that were biscuit jointed together and the sides and the legs were assembled with a Kreg jig and Kreg brand fasteners. For a finish I used Formby’s tung oil, I think it gave it a great finish.

Great wood choice, and with a history, too. Love it, nice job!
