Perhaps the thing I like best about this website is seeing the creative ideas that people come up with. This is another very neat and very creative idea. Well done.

Love the table Bill. very unique and well done. What are the woods you used & what finish?

The Top is a cut of cypress gathered from the slab pile of a local sawmill. Legs are ash picked up at the scrap pile of a local handle mill and the rest (trim & bottom shelf are seasoned willow gathered from the banks of the Current River.

Many cabin owners here appreciate the willow being cleared out. Makes for a better view of the river. Makes good furniture too.

The finish was 1/3 linseed oil 1/3 turpentine and the rest satin poly. (2 coats)

Thanks Jim.

Rustic furniture styles & design’s are limited only by the imagination of the artist.

I enjoyed looking at your projects. You are a very accomplished wood worker. Myself, I’m logs & sticks & roots & tricks. It’s in my blood I think.
