I made the trip up to Salem to the place where I have previously picked up salvaged wood (see desk project and bookshelf). This time the wood came from a structure built in 1908 and looks to be all Doug Fir with one piece of something else (possibly a pine of some type). The secret with working salvaged wood is finding the balance between square cuts and joints and preserving the character of the wood. I sanded it all down to where it was smooth enough to use as a table, but still had the circular saw marks I so cherish. Then 3-6 coats of poly and she was done.
I plan on making two benches with backs for either side, but that will have to wait about a month. Thanks for taking a look.
