Took apart an old table and chair legs…painted em orange..put em back together…cut a black walnut slab in half…worked the wood and put it together. Wished I’d made another, as all potential buyers ask where the other is.

This is a simple but striking build and quite inspirational as one often sees old furniture pieces like this put on the curb for garbage collection. The sky is the limit too for colour choices that can be used on the base to compliment the top wood.
Now if we only had chunks of walnut as dramatic as those we’d be all set. Nice idea, thanks for the post.
