Barn wood end tables (Douglas Fir)

My neighbor gave me a bunch of old barn boards from a barn they had on their property at one time. I made two simple end tables with biscuit joints and pocket screws. Both tables are 100% old barn boards. I made both tops with the wood grain traveling on an angle just to spice the table up. I put curves on the top and the legs as straight is boring.

They turned out great! Awesome re-use of barn wood while the grain direction & curved legs are great details.

Thanks for sharing.

Beau, nice project I love how those “eyes” are looking at me. The grain direction is just a nice touch.

They came out really pretty. The wood has so much character with those knit and grains. Love the finish. Well done!
