Another door comes to life. I cut it 32 inch square and the remainder of door I figured out the cuts for the legs.The pipe clamps are holding the panels while glue is drying up ,I had to take it all apart and re glued and then shot 3/4 brad into the tongue and groove plus I had to cut some banding to hold it all in place on edges .Legs are connected with pocket screws under side and also some L brackets.
Will be used as a coffee table 16-1/2 inches tall.

Great idea. You can never tell what you can make out of someone most people would toss in the landfill.
Great job

That’s good use for old wood, much better than the burn pile!

Your cat could be a cousin to my shop mouser (and birder and moler and sometimes even a rabbiter ;)

This is his summer outfit. He’s a lot ‘fluffier’ right now.

His name is “Rocky” (as in Rocky and Bullwinkle. Bullwinkle left us some time ago) but, he is also known as ‘Rockzilla’ or “Catzilla” (as seen in “Mouse Hunt). We have a 30 pound Dachshundt/Labrador house dog that is scared to death of that cat. When he walks by the cat going out he gives him a wide berth and if Rocky gives him a hard look the dog will even whine! Lol (No. He doesn’t have them any more but, technically, neither does the cat! I don’t think he’s quite figured that out though. :)
