This one-legged entry table is a recycled project. Before the recession hit I had a good resource for reclaimed lumber. A place I formerly worked at took down old barns and turn-of-the-century log homes, and turned them into new log homes and timber framed houses. This is a creation from some of the “cut-offs” that I snatched up. The leg is what I would call old growth red elm which machines wonderfully and carves well too. The top is a chunk of Douglas Fir which I believe was a cut off from a floor joist when floor joists used to be 3-4 inches thick :).... the design is a culmination of many hours of imagining how i could showcase the old holes in the joist, which instead of cutting them out and tossing them I tried to make them a focal point. My intention was to try and make the saw kerfs “point” to the knot.
