Making a Farm Table with Salvaged Wood

“Build your own furniture, a dream of many but a reality for few. In this video I show you how I make farm tables. This is one made for a customer for a new house. It’s 10 feet long and made from red oak, sawn from a dead standing tree. The base is made from (reclaimed) spruce and yellow pine. It is constructed with mortise and tenon joints, using a hollow chisel mortiser and a tenon jig I made for the table saw.”

The Homestead Craftsman has lots of similar videos about turning salvaged wood from old barns and standing dead trees into furniture and cabinets. This can be a good way to supplement an income in rural areas. I did this for many years.
