These night stands were made for a client who recently had reclaimed wood flooring installed throughout her house. The eastern yellow pine flooring was salvaged from a Pennsylvania barn and fashioned into tongue and groove flooring. The tables were made from the left over scraps, complete with termite and worm holes.

They were a challenge because the back side of each 6” wide scrap piece had four parallel groves running the entire length. This left only 1 3/4” of clear stock on each side of the grooves. I used that section for the glued up legs. The top and the shelf had to have breadboard ends so the grooves wouldn’t show on the ends.

Being Pennsylvania born and bred, it was a pleasure to give lumber from an old barn a third life as something useful.

They look great and recycled to boot.
