Well first off I cant take a pic of my projects and make them look good !? I can take pics of other things and they turn out great. I dont know. Anyways heres the my table. Purdy proud of it myself! Made it to look like a tresel table but it doesnt come apart. Did I mention its made from an old door? Pic three you can see were the hole is repaired. All in all Im happy with the result. Plus my wife ( who has by the way taken over my shop to build a new desk ) likes it. By the way, is that even right, her taking my shop like that? Said I couldnt help too! Thats not right is it? Anyways, the door came from an old hospital in West Virginia that was being remodeled. Just so happens that my step mom worked there at the time so my dad got a bunch of doors( which he made and sold a few tables himself ) and gave me this one. Maple veneer, walnut inlay, bottom and trim in recycled oak that came from an old barn. Actually, now that I think about it, the only thing that I bought for this is the glue and screws. The cherry stain and the poly were given to me. So I got about $10 in this table!

By the way the last coat of poly was still wet when I took these pics.

And please excuse the mess in the background!! We are in the prosses of moving so a lot of junk is being thrown around.

A super job on design and construction the table. Nice salvage project.

Great table, naice that you were able to reclaim some wood and save it from the dump.

Very nice! You wouldn’t even know it was formerly a door, but that’s an interesting history. Is it a solid door or hollow?

Wow…..really nice table…......and the price was right! You should get many years of use out of it.
When I set up my little workshop…..I went to the local reclaim store and came home with two 1 3/4 solid core doors ($5.00 each) that were taken out of a demolished motel. They are now my work benches.
