Needed a small table to fit in front of a window unit A/C without being in the airflow.
Dimensions approx 12” Wide x 32” Long x 12” High.
Woods used (Birdseye?) Pine(from a crate) & Mahogany(from a pallet) for the Top, Legs out of Ash?(from a pallet), Rails out of Walnut. Rails joined to legs w/ Mortise & Tennon.Finished with Clear Laquer.
It’s so nice to start with Trash & turn into Treasure!!

There’s a lot of woods going on! And it’s a really pretty mix.

That top! wow! Really awesome figure there. Pretty epic for pine, huh? I like the stripes.

I like the way that you more or less bookmatched the wood on the top. It adds balance to the table. Interesting figure in the wood too.

Great use of reclaimed wood!! That pine is stunning (for pine). I’m sure the pics don’t do it justice because I’ve had pine like this before and it really glows when lacquer is applied to it!!!!!

I ran across some birdseye pine when I was cutting some toy material. It’s kind of a unique find.

Great job.
