My daughter needed a table for there log house and would have liked a Barn plank reclaimed one.
I am fortunate to live in an area where there is a company that reclaims old barns and was able to find some pine planks and every one was real happy with the results. I sanded the boards and finish with epoxy which is kind of tricky and is a new concept for me to finish wood but worked out quite nice. Thanks for looking
