Made four sofa tables. First one is cherry, second is softwood barn boards, third is oak and elm, and the fourth is hardwood barn boards.

The softwood barn board table is held together with screws and plugs. The other three are mortise and tenon.

The last picture is what the hardwood barn boards look like after a powerwashing.

Nice job.
How long do you dry the lumber after you power wash it?

Nice tables. I like the simple design, with a couple nice soft curves.
Which of the woods did you like working with the most?

I let the boards dry for 2 days as they did not get saturated.

Cherry was the easiest to work with. The barn boards are always the most fun as they start off looking like junk, and then shine like gold when you are done. Just lots of work to get “finished” barn boards.

Wow.. very nice design. I really like.Great work. There is nothing like having a quality piece of furniture, and sofa tables make a wonderful accent to any d├ęcor. They can add some extra surface area in a place where there is very little room to set anything down

Have your say...
