kitchen table wip

i did all of the planing by hand, all of the joinery by hand, but i ripped with a table saw.

this is my first table. it's made with a bunch of scrap wood, so that's why it's so unevenly stained. this is after one coat of a redder stain. i'll do another with this and then do some brown, and then a clear coat.

no screws, i tried to fit the joints well without glue, but i did use glue.

i did mortise and tenon joints up top and bottom, some over lapping joints for the bottom shelf, and i made a groove for them to fit into. there's some half rabbet joints and mortise and tenon for the drawer to go.

i'm excited to do the drawer and pretty excited to do the cutting top.

i'm a woodworker, not a photographer! maybe next time i'll borrow a camera.

Hey that's not bad. Is that recycled from pallets?
Can't wait to see more.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

the legs were like...2 by 6's or something. dry they were less than two of course and then i planed them down flat so they were a little more than 1 inch and glued them together and then i cut them into 4 2X2's and then i mortised and tapered them.

the front was a 2x4 that i ripped in half and planed. the back and sides were 2x4's that i planed and tenoned.

the bottom part was a piece of poplar (i think) that i found in the alley. it was like...1"x8"x8' or something. it was one long board.

i have some of it left over to make the drawer out of.

the drawer's bottom will be some cut up really old fence that i'll plane until it's clean.

i just put on a second coat of red. it's looking really great. i'll put a brown on in the morning.

I will always be a fan of something recyled. On my watch list.

i have a bunch of hardwoods for the top, but i don't know if i have enough.

could anyone tell me what kind of wood is yellow?

it was a dark brown wood, and then i cut it and it was yellow and a little brown inside. the brown wasn't a stain and the yellow isn't a stain. it's a front piece of the top.

Clearer pictures would help but the wood that's yellow appears to be pine. Perhaps since it was recycled wood it was stained with something before you got it.

it most definitely isn't pine.

the bottom is pine and poplar that's been recycled, but the top is scrap wood from a deceased wood worker.

bodark doesn't seem to be it either. it's on the darker side, and it is very dense.
