I built this desk with reclaimed cypress barn boards. The legs are from an old dining table.

Wow that is really neat! Got a “colonial” feel to it. Always classy. Great way to reuse materials

My applause for using old boards (I would never gues), looks realy fantastic and complex. Finaly I like contrasting colours between legs and top. It’s realy old fashioned classic work table.
