This is the second coffee table I built from old barn wood from a barn that was blown down by a tornado in our area a couple years ago. A day with a crow bar and a trailer turned out to provide a pretty large supply of free wood. I was able to recycle several huge nails used to build the barn which I used on the construction of the table. I think the toughest part was preparing and gluing up the right pieces for a uniform thickness as many of the boards were a true 2 or 3 inch thickness with many cupped and crooked from natural weathering. But, hey, it was free wood and nails. One of my friends bought the table for his wife. That was icing on the cake for sure.
