Dining Room Table from Reclaimed Wall Studs
sorry for my negative comment. u did a great job on it. I also enjoy wood working which is why I opened ur link. thanks for sharing
Thanks; it makes for a great story.
Chairs were mentioned in the post. I even included the link to the amazon page I purchased them from. They were $360 total.I made the table in my spare time as a hobby. It was fun, enjoyable and low cost!Cheers!
If you don't enjoy woodworking then no it is not worth the effort. This guy obviously enjoys woodwork and has the kit. While quick and easy is sometimes necessary, I personally think projects that aren't quick and easy are often the most fulfilling ones.
Chairs are very expensive but i did not see that in your post. You did a great job of the table top, but you could have bought for a small cost.If u were not working it is a great idea. if you are working how much is your time worth? if it was quick and easy I'd say yeah ok but this tabletop took the life out of you. at that point i would say it was not worth the effort. i know anyone reading this will start haranguing me for this post but sorry that is my frank opinion. - JohnC430
By the look of his work space I don't think its a stretch to say this is a hobby of his or his line of work. Woodworking is just a hobby for me and I take scrap wood to make new projects all the time, especially when my handmade product is more rewarding and better quality than the store bought product. - freddamnrock
