This is and end table that I made out of oak and walnut. The walnut top is really nicely figured, (It wasn’t that way when I got it).... I got the piece of walnut from my grandpa who knew a guy with some walnut boards, it was really rough and pretty much looked like fire wood and one day I needed a small piece of walnut for a turning I was doing so I cut a piece out with my jigsaw and started turning it and discovered what the wood really looked like so I planed and sanded the whole board and new it had to be some kind of table.

Then the oak has a pretty neat story too, All of the oak in this table was reclaimed from the shelves of the library at my High school from when they remodeled it.

It is a pretty nice little table but I am debating on taking off the skirt, I don’t know if I like the look of it with it.

Nice table, beautiful figure on the walnut.
In the mid-1980s when they renovated the library in my high school, and my brother brought home a lot of oak shelves. My parents had a few pieces built out of it, and I now have the last board in my shop. Too bad that as things get renovated now, they only have pieces of plywood, mdf and melamine to throw in the dump.
