My neighbor removed part of their fence and had a pile of old wood that they said I could raid at will, I of course took them up on this. I really wanted to make a table for outside out of reclaimed wood.
I can assure you it took much longer than I though it would because I started with nails. Nails will NOT work with reclaimed wood, I am not sure what I was thinking. My advice USE SCREWS (good screws like deck screws) or you will have to redo it, trust me!
Look at all that wood there was no way I could let it go to waste. I created a very simple table design using the wood (sorry no construct photos and the design I sketched in chalk on the sidewalk). I do plan on maybe doing a plan but I need to take measurements of every thing because I didn’t write anything down when I did it.
Not too shabby of a table it is a tad crooked because I didn’t have my level or anyone helping me hold stuff in place but as you can see it does hold a drink and really that is the most important thing.
