Cute Lil’ Side Table…

Cute Lil’ Side Table…featured

Hey there!  Just thought I’d share some picts of a lil’ side table that I threw together this weekend.

Side Table Close Up

I’d bought these cute mid century legs at the local Habitat for Humanity thrift store a few years back and had been hanging onto them just waiting for the right piece of wood to come my way.  The top of the table is actually a small remnant of a 10′ long by 22″ deep by 2 1/2″ thick slab of kiln dried, live edge Ponderosa Pine.  I bought the lumber from a local guy that had harvested the dead tree and milled it himself for resale.  Let me just tell you, that piece of wood was HEAVY!  I couldn’t lift it myself, it must’ve been a BIG honkin’ tree before the beetles got to it.  Anyway, I purchased it to build a desk for a friend last year.  It turned out beautifully.  One of these days, I’m going to get a picture of the desk to share with ya’ll.  In the meantime, you’ll just have to settle for this mini edition of the thick cut of lumber that it originated from.

I stained it with Minwax Dark Walnut, and finished it with two coats of rub on, low gloss Tung Oil.

Now, I finally have a place to set my drink when I’m ready to kick back at the end of the day…
