This is my first attempt at this kind of table. 95% of my projects have no nails or screws. Most of the time I have to use figure eights to attach a table top. For this table I used screws to attach a board across the underside of the table and dowels to attach the top to the base. (I hope that made sense)

The wood I used was from several benches (pews) that a local church was tossing. Most of my projects are using reclaimed lumber.

Very nice…love the heart detail on the side! What a charming table and a great re-purposing of reclaimed wood :)

Nice table, I like the heart in the legs. Glad to see the wood used for it’s beauty rather than tossed or discarded. I hope it sells.
