This is a sofa table I did for my wife. The legs and base were made from old fence posts. The lumber I used for the top was from from some wood I found in a vacant lot. I love the spalting and the worm (some kind of bug) holes in the wood. As I said before I try to use no metal but I did end up using figure eights to attach the top.
I had fun with this because I finished it using some antique hand tools to try to make it look old. I used teak oil on the top and mixed some clear stain with a little paint added to get the color I wanted for the base.
