    Reclaimed Pine Table

    A friend asked if I would rebuild an old work table that had been made with wood from a house that was 200 yrs old. When he brought to the shop I started laughing. This thing wasn't even good for firewood. It looked like some kid had been given a hammer, a bucket of nails and some scrap pine and...
