Had a small stash of old Double Dutch 4 siding from a barn. Wife wanted a small end table for beside the bed. Legs were ripped down from a 2×10 on hand. Hand cut mortise and tenon joints. Top is 18” by 21”, and sits 22” off the floor. Nice weekend project. Finish is poly with just a hint of BLO added for colour. Last photo shows some of the stash.

A very nice bedside table from the wood that protected the hay loft!
Though sleeping surely wasn’t the only thing to happen in the loft!!! ;^0
