When someone tries to give me a pile of scrap wood, I usually refuse. I just don’t have the inclination to keep a bunch of wood that I might need at some point lying around. For creative minds like imgur user theobaldr however, these pieces of useless wood can be turned into countless amazing things such as crafts or furniture. That’s exactly what he does with this scrap wood DIY table. I would have never envisioned this pile of old wood becoming something so beautiful.
They received these boards from an old man who claims they were the floorboards for the the cold storage at the Cape Town Harbor.
So they laid the boards out and what do ya know? They look like a giant table.
They started by measuring the boards and cutting them to length.
They fit together nicely, it isn’t hard to imagine them once being together as a floor.
Building the legs was the next step. This is done by gluing pieces of wood together then clamping them to get the most secure seal possible
All six legs were then cut from the one glued piece.
The legs were all cut to the same length and excess glue scraped off.
Simple dowel joints make up the entire table because, well theobaldr didn’t really have any experience making joints. Hey, whatever gets the job done.
