Project Information

This barn wood table is made from 110 year old lumber from a barn deconstruction near my shop in Michigan. The top is old growth pine, and the base is made of oak. Its a simple trestle table which was a fun project to make. I made a video you can check out on youtube of the construction. Thanks for looking!

Aaannnddd favorited! I've managed to snag some very similar wood from a similar source, and a buddy of mine is getting married and buying a house here directly… I've been thinking about building him and his soon-to-be-wife a dining table. Thanks for the ideas and video!

Very nice Dirk. I have a bit of a soft spot for trestle tables. Very cool.

Very nice table. I have a BIG barn that is deteriorating. It has many beams and boards and a lot of siding that is waiting for the right projects. A couple of these tables would give me some more experience.
Thanks for the post and video.

Looks nice. How did you install the bread board?

Thanks Everyone for the great comments! The breadboard ends are just glued, and screwed. I filled the screw holes with some walnut plugs for contrast, and to compensate for lazy joinery methods!
