Reclaimed Lumber Table
This table was made out of reclaimed lumber. The gray lumber is from a pergola that was in the elements for about four years. The lumber for the legs was purchased at the Rebuilding Center. The texture and color were very appealing and seemed perfect for turning into an indoor table to support plants under a window sill. I did very little sanding in order to preserve the color. I was really surprised at how quickly this table came together (one day). This was largely due to the rustic nature of the table design. I decided that I would not sand, stain or finish the wood. No glue was used in the construction so that the materials can once again be re-used in the future. The screws are exposed in order to further the effect of the rustic feeling. The barn has been brought inside.
