Salvaged Table Frame and Reclaimed Hardwood

Easy

All of my projects are produced using recycled, reclaimed, and repurposed materials. However, this one has been the most rewarding essentailly because it was incredible quick, easy, and gave the materials a second life. (oh! and very inexpensive). This piece makes for a wonderful dining table or even a study desk. Hope you find it as satisfying as I did!
