My new picnic table, the top again constructed from reclaimed flooring from my neighbor’s 100+ year old farm house in upstate NY. The outside of the octagon, spokes, and rosette in the middle were made from reclaimed stair stringers made of antique southern yellow long leaf pine, while the horizontal boards in each section are made from reclaimed cedar subflooring. Tied the top together with dowels and and band clamp during gluing. I thought the rosette and paneled look of the table looked nice.
The frame was made from simple pressure treated pine to resist the elements.
And of course, the obligatory “high five” photo upon completion of construction of table top #2 made from old flooring joists. You can see the first table top up close in the last photo.
Me and my neighbors love them and use them all the time!
