We love reclaimed wood projects, and this table is one of those! The contributor on the ‘Instructables’ made a brilliant Reclaimed Wood Flat-Pack Picnic Table With Planter or Ice Trough. The table was made from pieces: two ends that provide the structure for the table, two center pieces with the tabletop. What is more, gutter running down the center below the tabletop surface can be filled with ice to put your beers in on a hot day, or for planting herbs. The whole project came out great!
