the top of the table is made from oak that i saved from the scrap bin and tiles my wife found at a resale store. the legs are reclaimed oak that i got from a cousin of mine who works for a railroad. they were using oak 4×4’s to keep rolls of steel in place on the train cars. a couple passes through a planer and a few runs down the jointer and they are as good as new. the joinery for this particular table is pocket holes and biscuits. i have since started making these tables using mortise and tenon joinery.

-- i swear i just had that f*#$ing pencil a second ago!

You put them all together nicely. Great job. Take a pile of stuff and make it all good. That’s cool man.
