A new load of reclaimed barn wood means I get to play in the workshop.
I got three long hunks of reclaimed, live edge wood and decided one need to be used as a sofa table (or entry table).
I did not do a tutorial on this because I made it up as I went along, ha-ha! My thoughts were that I would put a wood X between the sides on the legs, but after I put the legs together (they are 10" wide) I decided it was too narrow of a space for an X.
I went with two boards, giving it sort of a mission style.
I also planned on having an apron or board lengthwise across the front and back. I cut the boards and as I went to put them on, I realized the live edge table top was not going to be wide enough on one end to cover the apron, so I eliminated that.
A live edge piece that I had worked well as a bottom shelf.
I finished the piece with a good sanding and MINWAX Early American stain and polyacrylic.
The stain wasn't too dark to hide the natural beauty of the wood, but dark enough to give the table a nice, "high-end" look.
