So I tried the steel wool / vinegar darkening method that I read about on LJ on this table. It’s 23 X 52 X 24. I read that some sort of tea is used after the vinegar is dry. Well, I used coffee instead. Thought it was fitting for a coffee table. I am fairly happy with the results. I even sold it before I got the top secured.
This whole table is made from reclaimed lumber. The top and trestle came from a 100+ year old house that collapsed. The 6 X 6 legs are scrap from a house my brother-in-law is building. The rest is from pallets I had laying around. Something old, something new is what I call it.
