Default Some recycled timber tables.

About 11 years ago, I was lucky to be given some Baltic Pine floorboards that dated back to about 1900. They were in great condition and I just added them to my pile of timber in the shed.
Anyway, a young slip of a girl I know has just set up in an apartment and needed some furniture. So I volunteered a coffee table and a hall table. Guess what I used? 100 year old Baltic boards and some much younger Black Walnut and Jarrah.
So here are some pics of the tables. The finish is an oil finish, Hard Burnishing Oil. Doesn't stain, resists heat and fluids.

Regards,

Rob

Had to look up Jarrah, new to me. Is that the trim on the bench?

Hi Paul,

Yes the Jarrah forms the table sub frame and the trim around the top.

Regards,

Rob

Hey Rob, nicely done as usual!
I wonder about the mitred trim around the top, and how you made provisions for expansion?

Hi Okami,

Thank you for the kind words. I guess I'm just seeing whether there will be much movement in the Walnut and Jarrah before I start making them for other people. The girl who I made them for, is my Beta test site. I'll post when I have some solid data. In retrospect, probably 4mm or 5mm Dominoes would have been a better option. Using the wider slot cutter to provide the mortises.

Regards,

Rob
