this table turned out better than i expected with the original dados used as accent it adds a nice detail i like alot all is recycled fom the floor beams used to floor the loft of the barn i believe the dado was home for a floating spline at the time it was a whay to maximize coverage or mabey just simpler to slot the beam and use a scrap piece for the tounge rather than loose the extra width

Great looking job. Couldn’t find your planer to smooth those boards up huh. (Just kidding)

All your furniture is beautiful. The fact that it’s all recycled lumber with a history makes them all better!

The heart pine looks fantastic! I would love to come across an old barn that I could dismantle for lumber like that!

And yet another amazing piece. Your work is topnotch. I like the use of recycled woods and your finishes. I also like the way you incorporate the material as you find it, without planing to make it look new.

I thought the square table was my favourite.. but now… this is .. awe-some.!!
The use of the original cuts in the wood. brilliant. You have kept a part of its history in tact. LOVE IT

Very sturdy table. Much better to recycle than just use for firewood!.
