this table is made out of reclaimed 2X4s that were once part of a beach boardwalk here in connecticut. i ran them all vertically and created a polished sheet steel top creating a unique look. the steel is untreated so it will scratch and patina with age, but it could also be protected with a more durable clear coat.
the video shows how i made it.
i apologize that this isn't a traditional "instructable-style" write-up; i make these videos for my youtube channel and try to share them here as well, for anyone who may be interested. this is a build for someone who would consider themselves "pretty ok" or higher with woodworking. feel free to ask questions and i will do my best to answer.
