Thought I’d start here, versus the “Project Showcase” cuz, well, it’s not really a project yet...
My family’s old dairy barn in Wisconsin was recently dismantled and I made the trip home to salvage some of the wood. The barn and wood have great sentimental value, and I’d like the finished table to still have our barn’s “identity” to it.
A couple of pics attached. The first is what I’ve saved. The second is what I’d like to create.
Design seems simple enough, while maintaining the raw barn beam look. Gonna be big and heavy, and I’m ok with that. Looking for any advice, guidance, cautions, etc., before I dive in.
Got a local saw mill that will mill the beams into what I need. I’m visualizing a 6’x4’ surface, with a 2” thick top. Ultimately benches instead of chairs. Outside of that, I’ll take whatever advice this braintrust would care to offer!
Thanks in advance! I’m sure I’ll have lots of questions!
