Reclaimed Lumber

Back at the beginning of April I wrote about some household items I made using leftovers from a commissioned project. Well, I thought I'd show you the original project. It's actually two pieces – two ridiculously heavy conference tables. One of them is roughly 4' x 8' and the other is 4' x 12'. Both have 3" thick slab tops. 

This is the small one. The lumber is mostly douglas fir as well as a little bit of cedar. The legs on this one – well, let's just say I wanted to challenge myself. Mission accomplished. As if dealing with 4" x 8" x 20' beams wasn't challenge enough. They're split, joined with a large butterfly and have tenons that go all the way through the top – and they're angled in two directions. Needless to say, I spent more than my fair share of time scratching my head here. Also, the finish on the legs isn't a stain.
