This table is made from solid rough-sawn white oak. The top is tong and groove joined to resemble an antique barn door. Prior to staining It was hand-planed, wire brushed and scraped to create a worn texture. The top is a brown color and the base is almost black for contrast. In the top you can see the pegs that hold the frame of the door together, marriage marks used to locate the parts, and a few details to resemble a shadow where the hinges and hardware would have been. While this table never actually was a barn door, it would take a sharp eye to realize it.
The skirt of the table slides into mortises on each leg and two lag screws hold everything tight. This allows for easy removal of the legs.
