Barn Door Table: Laid out to look like the structure of a barn door, the beetle kill pine top on this table sits on heavy, square-post legs. Finished with several coats of Watco Danish oil and natural clear wax, this cozy table finely features the work of Mother Nature.

Sweet table, I like the barn door pattern. Pretty tough to glue up I bet.

Thanks! Definitely not easy to glue. And the seams show it. I have the materials for a mobile clamping table that will get t-nuts to make life a lot easier, but I haven’t had the time to build it yet.

Very nice, very nice. How did you construct the top with the cross members?, half lap joints? Or are the long runners completely cut through and biscuit or doweled to the cross member?
Thanks for showing.
