this is a table i made for my uncle and aunt to fit into his hunting/outdoor room.. the table consist of a pine top salvaged from a commercial air conditioning shipping crate. legs and supports made from small down pine tree’s from a recent storm.. sanded with a ROS ripped with table saw. english chestnut stain on table top, and a generous ammount of gloss poly to keep some of the remaining bark on. wood filler and putty can really do a remarkable job hiding nail/staple holes when you get use to using it =)

-- Aint nothin to it but to do it!

I agree with Dadoo. This is a very unique table and I am sure it fits the room’s decor.

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful piece of art – ‘course if you have a wife like mine it will be covered up anyday with stuff (I say junk). I keep threatening her that I am going to build everything on a slant. Seriously though nice table.

Good work—on the table and on the recycling.
