From the forest to a barn and from flooring to end tables. The wood that I used to construct these two night stands came from left over flooring that was milled from the eastern yellow pine beams of an 1800 era Pennsylvania barn. The flooring covers an entire small house entire in San Diego.
The flooring had 3/8" wide 3/16" deep grooves on the back side and 3/4 inch thick. The tapered legs were a three piece lamination of flooring that I milled to 1/2 thick to eliminate the grooves. The grooves are intact on the underside of the top and backs of the aprons. Also intact are numerous termite and and nail holes, all of which were filled with wood filler.
Construction was primarily pocket hole screws with the exception of the drawer boxes.
