A few years ago a barn collapsed near me and I got some of the larger timbers out of it. They were about 8 or 10 inch square, hand hewn (spelling?) and about 12 feet long. They do have some large splits down them from about 100 years of weathering. I had thought about using them in a table of some kind like a dining room table (not for the top but the legs) but am unsure if I could. They are not perfectly straight, they have some curve to them as expected. Should I have them planed down to remove the weathering? What are some projects that you all could think of for them? I have 6 or 7 I think.
