I am in college right now to be a woodshop teacher. Many of my cooperating teachers formerly worked in the industry. Its a career thats worth looking into and since the licensure is specialized you don’t need the same classes that most educators take to teach high school.

The table tops are interesting. Rustic and modern at the same time.

How about a little build info. Did you use yellowheart in the center or stain the color? Are the top segments a veneer, thinner material or full thickness?

hey steve,

you might laugh at the simplicity of the wood i used. on the side i build picket privacy fences. so the older wood is old cedar fence pickets. the center cross is just out of new cedar fence pickets. its all screwed onto a sheet of 1/2 inch ply.

i started building stuff out of this media bored one night. and its been crazy the requests ive gotten for ‘fence picket’ furniture. great substitute for barn wood lol.

thanks, brady b
