Project Information

My son and his partners have been given a small space in a converted warehouse office building to set up their new business. He asked me if some heavy old hardwood slabs they ripped off the wall could be used to make a 6'by 3' work table that they could use standing or sitting on high stools.
This is the result. It comes in 5 parts including the top so that it could be easily carried in and bolted together.It is very heavy!
We used large recycled bolts and a couple of railway track spikes for hardware.
Took me about 2weeks of a few hours each day to make.
I used decking lanolin to finish off the rough hardwood.

When I saw the term Sleeper wood, I knew It had to be down under in Australia. I worked for Boral, here in the U.S.. We call them cross-ties up here. Another of your interesting terms is Bouser. The first time I heard that I thought it ment that someone had spent a lot of time in the bars. Anyway, a good recycle that looks great.
