Step 6: Table Tops

To replicate the look of the aged pine boards of my inspiration table I bought stain grade pine, had it cut down to the size I need, then used several techniques to "age" it before staining. The whole process included using wood glue and clamps to secure the planks together. I let it dry overnight and put some weight on top to keep it level. To give further support I used mending plates on the underneath to further attach the planks together.
I like it. Wouldn't this scratch the floor if it was on hardwood instead of carpet?
It sure would. But if you can drill into the metal to attach the top with screws, you can get little screw on rubberized feet to attach to the bottom and save your floor.
That's gorgeous!
