Making a reclaimed wood and table. the steps it took to build this side table from reclaimed, lumber proverbial woods. Okay, I've got these pieces ready to miter to create my frame. You can see I've got it hey an exposed edge where I just rip this stuff down. I've also got the original edge where you can see the old nail holes where the square nails where actually you can see there, there are some bits of square nails still sticking in there. I like to leave these edge to expose. This is what people love to see in this, old-style western reclaimed, furniture, look, okay, let's do a rope it up here and see honest things. Go okay, so the inside of my frame there is 17 and a half by 17 and a half I'm going to cut these panels 18 by 18. That gives me a quarter-inch lip that will fit inside that dado frame that I'm going to cut with that router.
Now, using the table saw I'm going to cut a lip on my two panels. Here, the little lip will fit inside the groove on the frame tonight you can see I build this. Lip will go into the dado downturn all the way around this panel. Now, using a router and a rabbit bit, I'm going to cut a slot on the edge of that 2 by frame member to hold the top panel in place. Okay, now using a biscuit joiner, I'm going to cut little notches in my corners to join these together with a biscuit as in so you won't see that, of course, it'll be down in the middle of the board. Carry our nice little be nice and strong. When it's all glued up so see my hair things dry fit no glue. Yet I think this is going to come out really nice when it's all said and done here now before I blew this up, I'm actually going to take a belt sander and put little scallops along all these edges again. This is, I want this to think. Look like it was built on the cattle drives 150 years ago, come across now I'll scalp, the edges of the panel, as well as the frame members, and I'm going to do one final dry, fit here before I glue this apply glue to my different pieces and Assemble this take a quick look once this thing is done.
I've turned the top upside down now in here somewhere. I want to hang another lower shelf in here anyway. This is going to be the general look of the thing again we're looking at it upside down, so we've got to figure out how to mount that lower shelf in there that's going to take some head-scratching. Okay, I'm jury-rigged up one of these legs to the 45 degree angle, so I can use my miter saw to start a curve, a notch that will be on the inside corners of those legs, something the Shelf can sit on there. That's my plan, Eddie. Okay, I've cut a little curve. The bottom of this leg, I'm going to clean it out with a nice sharp chisel. Okay. So now, on the bottom of this table located where the legs are going, I drill a little quarter inch hole, so I can temporarily mount these legs so now I've got this little table temporarily assembled I've attached the legs, and now I want to measure this inside Area down there, you can see my little notches in here that that lower shelf is going to be carried on. It's really hard to accurately measure that total of things assembled, and these little bolts will be eventually replaced by something I'll show you in a little while.
I'm going to countersink a small hole right in this corner, drill that into there and secure that lower shelf from below you'll, never see a screw countersink a little pilot hole just enough to let the head of the screw cut disappear. What is happening here close up at the top a little bit see the edges. The old nail holes got the scalloped edge where these two joints meet I'll scout the outside edge to a little bit. You can see the lower shelf under there I lightly sanded that before I assemble this okay, I'm going to continue Scout and just think cleaning it up here. Okay, so here's where we are now I got this thing put together, pretty good, I'm going to replace those top little lag bolts there for some big bridge, washers and bigger legs, give it some kind of old-time cowboy railroad, look but you're getting the feel of it. Cut 80 grit sandpaper here a little orbital, sander boy. I notice I forgot to scout. The inside of my edge is probably because they couldn't get in there at the belt sander. So I've got a little knife here are keeping the shop. I made this from an old file. Actually, I just ground it and glued some leather on for a handle works quite great.
