My wife wanted an rustic old table top paired with modern legs. She found a picture online and this was my attempt and building it. I got a barn door from a 100byr old farm that was falling in. Got these 2-10 oak boards that were used in a factory as baseboards ripped and planed the 2-10 boards to make the box legs. Pressure washed the yrs of dirt and manure off of the barn door then had to use the mix of vinegar and steel wool to oxidize the door back to the way I found it. then some light sanding to smooth it. I used paste wax applied with a scrub brush since after testing many other finishes it changed the color the least. My wife was looking for the grey color we’ll see how the wax works never done it like that before. Used anchor bolts to attach the legs to the top. Even left the door latch on the top for accent.
