The Abundance of Old Barns and Sheds in and around our farm home have supplied us with real barn wood to use in building tables. The items built so far with the barn wood have been of the shorter variety. The useful pieces, or portions of the barn wood have been short in length. As a result, the tables built have consisted of Wine Bar Buffet Tables, a Coffee Table, and a Small Rustic Table.
Here are some of the creations…
BARN WOOD WINE BAR BUFFET TABLES:
A RUSTIC “MAN CAVE” COFFEE TABLE:
It should be noted that the Man Cave Coffee Table was constructed with pieces of lumber from three (3) separate barns. The top is from one, the legs are from another one, and the 13″ wide bottom shelf is from a separate 3rd barn. (FYI: At a future date, we expect to obtain some more of the wide plank lumber from the 3rd barn source for a 6-8 person Farm Table.)
SMALL RUSTIC BARN WOOD TABLE:
And with the coffee table, we built this Rustic Barn Wood Table with the remainder of the barn wood we had. As you can see, the top of the table and the coffee table are very similar. Please know… that we anticipate building more of these type tables in the future. ….(FYI 2: We know where there is a boat load (seriously… in a boat) of this barn wood just waiting for us to create something unique in the very near future.)
And then, ….we get requests from folks who want us to build a ‘Family Keepsake’ from some barn wood from their family farms. For example, below is a picture of a large Barn Door that a family friend wants us to use to build a number of table items for them.
LARGE BARN DOOR For FAMILY KEEPSAKE TABLES, ETC:
We anticipate disassembling this large barn door in a week or two and start building a family table with some of the lumber this coming July.
