Coffee table made from some old barn wood I bought from a guy. I planed off one side and left the bottom as a reminder of what it looked like before. The girl I gave it too loves it. I wish I had kept it. It was included with 60 bft of walnut I bought. For $25. It was a steal.
Minwax Special Walnut stain and 3 coats of lacquer. I am guessing it was ash, but I am not really sure. Feel free to guess away.

Not sure what it is other than really nice looking.

Great craftsmanship on this, looks real good. How did you finish it, it has a nice soft look to it?

That looks great and well made. The wood has some beautiful grains and the finish sets it off. Great job!

Very nice, I love the wood coffee table. A coffee table enjoys a place of privilege in every living room. Wooden coffee tables are also fantastic pieces to have in your home. Often, they have more of a rustic look and look good with a neutral or earthy decor
