Wood Scrap Table

Use some scrap wood to build this weathered-looking table
Are you a fan of DIY ideas based on waste wood? Using salvaged wood can dramatically lower the costs of any project and if it’s free from rot it has a durability and quality of a new one. The only thing you need to do is to sand it if you’re not a fan of aged wood.

Wood Scrap Table I’m presenting you today, was built of wood mostly taken from decaying buildings and with additional materials it costed less than one hundred dollars. This idea was created by Wholeman, Instructables’ user, who’s a skilled furniture hacker. As he said, this may be not the quickest project in the world, but with a little help from his friends, it only took a few weekends.

We wonder how many of you will decide to give it a go - let us know what do you think about the project.

    you can use feather duster :) but I think there won’t be too much dust UNDER the table due to gravitational force ;)
