Truss Table from Heirloom

Submitted by ClemsonJoe on Fri, 11/21/2014 - 07:17

Here is my latest project completed. I took the table that belonged to my wife's parents and re-purposed it. Took it apart, stripped it, rebuilt it into a farm style table, and refinished it. Put it on top of a base that I built, painted and distressed. Turned out solid as a tank. Broke bread on it for the first time tonight. It should last for a couple more generations!
