let's see what happened.
In April we added a storage room to our workshop and I needed to burn or use a bunch of stuff ... Soooo ... I had a plan ...
I had this old screen I salvaged from an 1920's Art Deco house that was demolished ... just sitting behind the work shop for months, but still in sound condition. Needed to be stripped.
and four very weathered porch bannister pieces that were almost rotten ...
Ace Vinyl Spackling saved them and we were able to make some tall legs by putting two together and adding a base. I just rubbed spackling in all the cracks and weathered places and it filled like magic.
We used our Kreg pocket hole jig to construct everything. (This was my Christmas present) ...
Papa John's Pizza just opened and we reclaimed the lumber they used to crate their signs and made the shelves and counter top, again, using the Kreg pocket hole jig. (love it!!!).
Had to remove thousands of staples.
We used these chair or rocker spindles/legs for extra support under one shelf. They had to be shortened and filled.
I did not use outdoor paint and have a wax finish on it, so it may not be suitable for outside. To make painting it easier; I painted each peice before I assembled it, but in the end, decided to use dark wax on it ... what a job!!
Would make a nice washstand or a display shelf in the bathroom, garden room, covered porch or maybe just anywhere. The bottom shelf is slatted, but the others are solid.
Big and heavy.
Everything used was recycled, reclaimed or re-purposed. The only thing new were the screws.
Would be awesome to display white ironstone,
but no room in my house for it.
So ... is it a potting table or not ???
What would you use it for?
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you are inspired to build something, maybe not as hard as this was, but let it challenge you.
