The very first piece of ‘proper’ furniture I made was one of these tables. I’d ordered some metal railings for a job I was working on, and they arrived on a pallet that was 6ft long and 4ft wide, and looked nearly new. I didn’t have space for it in the skip, so I broke it down with the intention of using it for firewood. But as it sat in my workshop I realised that burning this perfectly good timber would be a total waste. Then I had an idea…..
Combined with the stools and benches this makes up part of the Herringbone Dining Table Set. Tables are treated with an outdoor grade varnish, so can be used inside and out. I would suggest bringing it in over the winter months to extend the lifespan as much as possible.
