Hi guys and gals. I ha so much scrap pieces of wood that I couldn’t burn them fast enough in the BBQ pit so, I decided to make this table top out of them. the legs and apron is cherry and as always there is a hidden compartment in there for all those candy bars I don’t wish to share!
Thanks for looking and all comments are appreciated.

Thanks Jim… I think there is more glue than wood in that structure.

A beautiful table top and a great way to use up all the scrap pieces. The hidden drawers are a feature. Can imagine the time and gluing etc you must have used up. Well done and thanks for showing.

Wow! That almost makes me dizzy looking at it. Beautifully done, Mahdee. How big is it (the real question is ‘How many candy bars can you stash in those drawers?’)?

Thanks a million for all the encouraging comments. Bob and Candy, the table top is 28×18. Here is a picture of the hidden compartment which is secured in place with 4 super magnets.

Agree with the WOW crowd. Reminds me of the ripple stitch blankets my grandmother crocheted. Great creative use of scraps I am sure you have inspired many others to take a second look at their burn pile. Thanks for sharing.
