This barn wood table is made from 110 year old lumber from a barn deconstruction near my shop in Michigan. The top is old growth pine, and the base is made of oak. Its a simple trestle table which was a fun project to make. I made a video you can check out on youtube of the construction. Thanks for looking!

Great table, great video. I’m in the middle of a similar project, viewing this may prove helpful. Thanks for showing.

Aaannnddd favorited! I’ve managed to snag some very similar wood from a similar source, and a buddy of mine is getting married and buying a house here directly… I’ve been thinking about building him and his soon-to-be-wife a dining table. Thanks for the ideas and video!

Very nice Dirk. I have a bit of a soft spot for trestle tables. Very cool.

Very nice table. I have a BIG barn that is deteriorating. It has many beams and boards and a lot of siding that is waiting for the right projects. A couple of these tables would give me some more experience.
Thanks for the post and video.

Looks nice. How did you install the bread board?

-- Bill M. I love my job as a firefighter, but nothing gives me the satisfaction of running my hand over a project that I have built and just finished sanding.

Thanks Everyone for the great comments! The breadboard ends are just glued, and screwed. I filled the screw holes with some walnut plugs for contrast, and to compensate for lazy joinery methods!
