Since I finished my basement a year or so ago, I’ve been wanting to build a side table to match my bar that I built out of old growth douglas fir (pics 3 and 4). The beams that I used for the top came out of a building I tore down that was built in 1880. I haven’t really been able to find a design that I like so I’ve been putting it off. Then I decided on a Pottery Barn table but didn’t want to spend $300. That led me to knockoffwood.blogspot.com. I ended up building this table out of regular old 2×4’s from HD. I used pocket hole screws to join everything together and some old maple stain to match the bar top. I think it turned out great, especially for about 2 hours worth of work and $10. Fine furniture it ain’t, but it’s built to take a beating from me and the kiddos. Next up is a console table for behind the couch.
Thanks for looking.
