My friend came to me with this idea to build a coffee table for his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. With the challenge accepted we went to an old farmhouse where a barn had been demolished and all that was left was the pile of wood that once held it together. We picked the best pieces we could salvage to construct said coffee table. The rough stock Oak was approximately 2” thick and we planed it down so all pieces were an inch and a half. We glued up the top 3 pieces, planed it and attached the outside frame using pocket holes underneath (once again the Kreg Jig came in handy). We installed the legs, sanded, and applied a few coats of shellac and a few coats of polyurethane. The one thing HE has left to do is haul that thing up 3 flights of stairs to his girlfriends apartment for her Valentine’s Day surprise.
