We have a camp up in Northern PA that we were remodeling the kitchen in. When we got to the sub floor, I noticed that it wasn’t your typical Pine, it had a stamp Made in Brazil, and was anywhere from 4/4 to 5/4 thick. So, being the wood hoarder that I am, I took as much of it home, in small pieces because the way the joists ran, we could only cut about 20” pieces out at a time, that I could. It sat in my garage for quite a while because it was never long enough to use for anything I was building at the time. Eventually, I decided to make end tables for up at camp, where this wood came from obviously. This was what I came up with, and I also threw in some barn wood scraps I had laying around rather than throwing them out. Final dimensions are 24” x 24” x 20” H.

It looks very well built, give yourself an at-a-boy, pat on the back.

Wonderful repurposing of the flooring from the kitchen. I bet they really appreciated it also

Hi from Mifflin County near State College. very nice design, color and pattern. And I am sure you took some abuse holding onto that wood waiting for right project. please check my home page for some ideas, maybe my tailgate table would work at camp since it folds and stores no nuts or bolts needed. I am near a company that sells its cut offs for any use..ash maple…great buy for the load or projects. message me about this if you want. See my first cutting board for a picture of the load. Thanks. Hal

Thanks everyone. Hal, I actually live right next to a cabinet mill, so if I ever run out, I got a hookup over there that I can get some spare wood to tinker with. But, in the case I need some Ash, I will definitely let you know. Thank you!
