This little TV stand was built from repurposed cypress. The legs are 4”X4” wall studs from a barn that my great grandfather built in the early 1920’s. The top and shelf are from the same barn but must have been added as repairs later on, it’s a little younger! The trim is from recently milled and cured cypress. The funny shape is because one end of the board I wanted to use had this screwy angle to it. I just matched the other side. There is no stain on this build! Only 3 coats of clear polyurethane. The older the wood was, the darker it became and it and just sucked up the clear coat! The difference in colors really popped! I was pleasantly surprised!
This stand is 50” wide at the top, 17” deep and 26” tall.

Wow, that color change is quite dramatic. Cool that the wood has that much character AND great family history.

That is one sharp looking table, and I really like the grain in it. The finish makes it stand out real well. Excellent job ! Mel
