But then one morning, I found a pile of boards in an unexpected place.
Plus- the price- pretty amazing.
Which was fine with me- I actually loved the idea that the boards would look more like
an original vintage handmade piece where people used what they had on hand to make something.
If you have boards that run the full length- it would be much easier to make the top.
and then the boards resting on each end or ‘head’ of the table area.
this table has 3 support boards running across it to accommodate the random lengths.
we simply used another scrap piece of wood to ‘connect’ the boards together.
You could of course use a bracket or something else instead of boards
we just happened to have extra small pieces of wood
that were a perfect size and fit on hand and so that’s what we used.
Secure the tabletop to the frame by using screws and L brackets if you like.
We went along with each board securing it to the frame and the supports as we went
Once you have all the boards secured to the table frame and supports
and any reinforcements in place- you can sit back and admire your work.
The finishes on the top don’t match- and there are some gaps- but I don’t mind at all.
