My porch railing was rotting, so I pulled it down, but it was only rotted on the ends, so I turned it into a table, using hand tools only. It appears to be fir, and the wood is very nice after removing all the paint.

That’s what I like ! Treasure from trash.
Darned if I might just have to try making something just with hand tools.
Thanks for the inspiration.
