Project Information

This table is 24" wide, 22"high and 11" deep. It was built for my parents, from the last remaining piece of lumber that I surfaced my workbench with: ~100 year old softwood boiler shipping crate parts, from England.

The legs unfortunately are just construction grade pine, nothing special. The finish is a technique I've grown accustomed to using: one layer of tung oil, a second layer wet sanded with 800 grit paper, and beeswax mixed with Johnson's paste wax. Works well, relatively durable, just don't put a hot coffee cup on it.

It's somewhat of a cousin to my cross-cut saw bench, Iwouldn't be surprised to see them both disappear when I deliver this summer.

Thanks for looking,

-J

I love using old lumber that most people would throw out, for projects that will live on. From growing in the forest to shipping a boiler from England and now a great piece of furniture. Nice work!

Thanks! Yeah if I had a way to get my hands on it, that's all I'd use. I don't have a car though, so I'm somewhat limited in what I carry (though I can occasionally be seen cycling with a stack of lumber over my shoulder). I have yet to start ripping pallets, but that'll come soon enough.
