This table is made from fence boards someone in my neighborhood had in their trash pile. I made it as a practice project, something I could build quickly without too much concern with the out come. All of the pieces are laminated including the cross members in the base. The maple leaf inlay is quartersawn cedar that came from an old fence post my dad found. I made this inlay using a process I saw in FWW magazine, and used The Wood Whisperer’s method of cutting the recess into the tabletop. This was a very fun project.

Nice looking bench. Nothing to be pitched here. The inlay is great and the table looks like a keeper to me.

Gotta love the found wood projects. I have a few of those projects myself with one in sitting in the clamps right now.

You bring new meaning to the sayng, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Great inlay job, too! Don’t tell that neighbor where you got the wood from when they see the table. LOL.

Oh the beauty you can create when you’re not concerned with the outcome….

that isn’t a Maple leaf, it’s a Cedar leaf (in disguise!) ;)

Nice project – really like the inlay. Bet it feels good – you have a beautiful piece of furniture and all it cost was some time and minimal material. Gotta love it.
