Sometimes woodworking is not work at all! Here are some of the ways I use reclaimed wood and upcycle my hardwood scraps.
Redwood Sofa Table
The top is made of a piece of redwood bark I found submerged in the river a couple of years ago. I have been patiently waiting to build something with it while it dried out. The legs are made of old growth redwood I salvaged from the local dump. I played with the design for a couple of weeks before arriving at what you see pictured.
Cherry Hope Chests with Aromatic Ceder Lining
These tables are designed to fit snuggly against your couch. The base slips under and the top rest over the couch, the perfect "coffee table" when space is limited.
