A good friend celebrated a milestone birthday this year, and since he’s a real wine afficionado, I wanted to give him a few very nice bottles of wine presented in a special way. I’ve seen expensive vintage wines sold in wooden presentation boxes, but I wanted to make something that’s well beyond the ordinary. So I designed a box that presents the wine bottles by “popping them up” as the lid is opened.
This project turned out to be something incredibly special to our family… something we all built together. Normally, I try to keep the boys entertained with something while I work on blog projects, but this table was different. This is the place we gather for every meal. The place where holidays, birthdays, and Taco Tuesdays are celebrated. The place where we talk and struggle through math homework and compare biceps with each other.
My own personal shop is a 20x20 section of my garage. Some people might argue that I've got plenty of space, but those people obviously feel their lives are complete without owning a panel saw. I'm not judging. I'm just saying that panel saws are awesome. And even with four-hundred square feet I need to find some creative storage solutions in the shop to accommodate my power tool addiction. There are plenty of people who have done a lot more with a lot less. Here are some of my favorite space saving workshop ideas.

Here’s a traditional Swedish farm accessory for gunk-laden soles. The dimensions are not critical, but be sure the edges of the slats are fairly sharp?they’re what makes the boot scraper work. Cut slats to length, then cut triangular openings on the side of a pair of 2x2s. A radial arm saw works well for this, but a table saw or band saw will also make the cut. Trim the 2x2s to length, predrill, and use galvanized screws to attach the slats from underneath. If you prefer a boot cleaner that has brushes, check out this clever project.

After cutting the rabbet joints, we walk you through the glue-up and assembly of the box. This critical stage in the process involves applying glue to the box parts and using clamps to hold the parts together while the glue dries. The assembly and glue-up tips that we detail in this episode -- and our companion article -- can apply to the assembly of any woodworking project.
If you want to get into woodworking, a good project to tackle is building your own workbench. It's really not that hard. So if building your own workbench is a bit too much work, or too intimidating, then take a step back and examine whether you really want to get into woodworking. This may be different if your goal is to cut silhouettes of kittens out of plywood with a scrollsaw, but I wouldn't call that sort of activity "woodworking".
You can make this table with a budget of around $100 from solid wood which makes the table extremely sturdy and durable. The inspiration was drawn from Restoration Hardware Provence table, and Anna White provides this plan with a little twist. The project is very easy to complete from 2x4s. 4x4s are difficult to find and also expensive. Moreover, you will find it difficult to cut and join 4x4s tending to warp.
Since this 130 year old wood is painted on one surface I wanted to make sure it was sealed on all sides.  This old paint most likely contains lead.  It is always a good idea to seal both surfaces of a table top anyway to minimize warping from different rates of expansion and contraction.  Prior to sealing the top, it was sanded with 100, 150 and 220 grit sandpaper.  Two coats of Bullseye sealing shellac were applied to the top and bottom of the table top.  Two coats of Bullseye amber shellac and one coat of Bullseye clear shellac was applied to the table top after sealing.  Two coats of clear Briwax was rubbed into the top and buffed out for the final shine.
Not at all! I meant to put the total cost in the post, so thank you for reminding me! The wood totaled around $50 for the table and $34 for both benches. We spent another $25 or so on screws and miscellaneous tools, so for about $110, I’d say that’s not too bad!! It took my husband and I a couple hours to build the table, another couple hours to build the benches, and about 2 days to sand, distress, stain, and seal everything.

I love this barnwood reclaimed table-your husband did a beautiful job! We have a coffee table and two end tables (hand-me-downs) that remind me a little of this table. They each have metal legs that have criss-cross metal bars that make shelves below, and are great for holding baskets. The tops of each were pretty rough when we inherited the tables, and lately I’ve been thinking about either sanding and then white-washing the wood, and now after seeing your pictures I’m thinking more about just sanding the tops and see how they look and maybe finishing them like you did your table!? (I think I like your idea better! How many coats of Varathane did you folks use?) Thank you so much for sharing!
