Reclaimed Door Coffee Table


In search of a unique and affordable coffee table, I decided to build my own using reclaimed materials. My father-in-law found a solid wood door, and my father gave me some salvaged walnut from the neighbor's barn that was torn down. Using only a circular saw and a Kreg Jig, we finished the table in record time. We cut off the ends of the table for the legs at 15" tall, leaving 50" for the top. We measured the width and used scrap furring strips for cleats on the legs, then nailed walnut planks into the cleats. With a quick trim piece of walnut on the lip of the shelf, we were done! Our only cost was in screws and nails. Since then we've found several discarded doors on the curb in our town, and have built door tables for friends!

    I love it! I really like the door knob being there. If you have the key to it, do a tassel effect without the tassel, having the key dangle over the edge of the door. This could be as decorative or as simplify as you want. Even as simplify as Butcher's twine tied around the knob, a length of four or five inches between the tying of the key.
