I found three old solid wood doors on the side of the curb last summer which yielded some pine, fir and cedar. I also had some 4×4 hardwood pallet wood and a new glass shower door which i salvaged from a local glass company. The original intent was to make a glass top loft style desk.
I wanted the bolt holes from the pallet to be left where they land and i wanted the cavities from the old cast metal door latches and handles and locks to show as well. The desk turned into a table and the holes were not as charming as I thought and the notches and holes for the glass door hinges and handle took away from the build of the desk and so on
In the end I have a 25.75” wide x 74.25” long x 31.5” high table that is still becoming something else. I could not get the table top dead flat and filling the cavities with different woods did not give me the desired effect either. So why did I post this? Because it’s been a few months and there are some cool elements to it and I thought it might be a way to move on to another project for now. I did learn how to do haunched and through tenons and I dovetailed the center cross member to the center of the front and back aprons.
