Well this started out with an old Singer sewing machine. I had plans on fixing it and giving it to my mom. But my good intentions got ruined when we had a heck of storm that ruined not only my barn but alot of wood I had stored in it and the sewing machine. So my dad gave me some wormy chestnut that he got from this guy in West Virginia. This guy goes around and finds these old coal miner shacks and tears them down. Then sells the wood to my dad. Ive seen where all you guys are really into recycling so I had an idea. I had the bottom of the sewing machine which was still good and this great wormy chestnut. Put em together and what have ya got? One very sturdy table! I really love how this turned out. No really impressive wood working skills involved but Im happy with the results. For the top I used 3 coats of boiled linseed, let it soak for a week, then 2 coats of Johnsons wax. For the bottom its just 2 cans of glossy spray paint followed by a clear sealent. You can see were the worms really worked on the wood. (at least I hope the pictures are good enough so you can)Some of the holes are nail holes though.
let me know what ya think!
