So often I think as woodworkers we believe that great projects come from great wood. This Saw Horse end table is made from a single construction grade 2×6. I was able to build this table for only $5 in lumber. It was a lot of fun to find a way to work around the knots and imperfections. The end result was the functional yet attractive sawhorse inspired end table. Here is a quick YouTube video of how it was made.

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.
