These are made from an assortment of wood I have been collecting for a while.
The top was once a rafter in a Pennsylvania barn.
The Legs were once siding on a Virginia barn.
The bottom shelf was once a door threshold in a D.C. Condo building.
The Crate was once a simple pallet.
I have trouble throwing away nice pieces of wood, so I enjoy these smaller projects where I get to give them new life.
The finish is shellac over BLO.

That is a very nice table and crate, Very functional and a great way to use off cuts. Outstanding work there.

WOW. Great job.
They are beautiful, what a magic way to use small pieces.
I’m a bit like you, I think I have a piece of wood from everywhere we go.
Thank for sharing.

I like it sir. Nice work. I like it enough to capture the picture for future thoughts on using the style for a top.

Have your say...
