This project starts with me finding some reclaimed wood on Craigslist. I went to buy only a few pieces to bring home for a small project, but then the salvage guy made me a deal that I couldn’t refuse. He needed the wood off of his trailer and actually offered to drive 40 + miles to deliver it onto my driveway at no extra charge. I decided to make a Tuscan style rustic farm table that could sit 10 comfortably and 12 with two people at each end. I wanted to use the 6×6’s at the top of the table, and selected the 3 best, re-sawing them down to 3×6. I left the original circular saw blade marks, nail holes and cracks in the wood, working around them, as the real character and the story of the wood lives in these markings.
