Made a couple of end tables out of barn board that I cleaned up. Turned out to be mostly fir and a bit of pine. Used floating tenons to assemble this and practiced a bit with the tapering jig on the legs. Coated it with about a 1lb. cut of shellac, top coated the table, left the shelf uncoated and good to go.

I like the reuse aspect of this project. The tables look great and they have a history to tell as well.
