Wife wanted an end table. I made it from pine 2×4 i had lying around. the top was from a 2×6 my brother found in a dump. i had to resaw the 2×4 for the sides and legs for their shape. the top i remilled and glued up. legs have red sedona stain and then all is finished over in amber shellac.

Looks pretty good Joe. You’re doing great things with reclaimed lumber.

I made a trestle table from the floorboards and beams from the portion of my 1735 house that I had to remove. Lots of sentiment. One suggestion is to limit the neck twisting worldwide by rotating your image. Here is a blog I submitted to help you along…..Taking better pictures

i did and for some reason it didnt save or something after it being late and all i gave up trying. i am using gimp and for some reason it would allow me to rotate it because it had opened 3 images at once. i will try to fix when i get a change

ps i used to be a professional photographer so the picture deal was kind of embarrasing. photography was how i paid my way through college to get my degree in computer science. i use linux and sometimes permissions get to where you cant even change the file, turned out that the permissions were keeping me from saving it with the rotation.

Love the fact that you re-purposed the wood! Next time, send me your Linux questions. It’s what I do! :)
