A good friend gave me the table. It was heading for the burn pile. After a few replacement parts and a complete remake, it now stands sentry in my dining room.

I’d kinda like to see more pics of that. Looks pretty nice from what I can see. Can you expound a little?

Well, when I first saw this table it never crossed my mind to “get rid” of it. I reaffirmed a few times with my friend that it was sure that he didn’t want it. He was sure and was more than glad to give it up. I took a few looks and a few parts (legs) off of it and decided to make new ones. In this process a narrowed the top and the shelf by 6 inches. There was some wood rot in the center of the top, and when I took the bottom shelf off, it was rotten also. I see where my friend wanted to get rid of it. But, the thought still never crossed my mind. I salvaged one leg and used it for a pattern, and free handed the lower shelf. What you see in the picture is a narrowed top with the original wood, of course, less the rot.
