A month ago I got the opportunity to purchase about 28 boards of barnwood and while sorting through the pile I saw this one board and right away I knew what the end project was going to look like. Once I cut the board to size I started my drawings and shortly after I began constructing the table. It measures 52” wide, 13 1/4” deep, by 32” high. It took some figuring out to find a good way to stabilize the “fragile” barnwood. I ended up using liquid nails and a couple (20 or so) drywall screws to secure it to a piece of 3/4” mdf. The glass is rabbeted into the edge trim. The drawers are machine cut dovetails with a chamfered edge detail. Finish was done with a flat black paint, rubbed through, then a cherry gel stain on exposed areas finished off with a few coats of wipe on poly. The base is constructed of solid maple. It was a fun quick project.
