Here’s a small Christmas gift project – a bench using reclaimed pine. The top board is from a 1780 built house in Clinton, CT, and the bottom boards are from the 1800s. I had to remove handmade, square head nails from each. The pine is finished with Antiquing oil (Miniwax?) and General Finish water based poly.

Very nice table Jeff. using reclaimed wood is a plus. In my area it’s difficult to find.
