Collection of materials for the reclaimed wood dining table
For the manufacture of the table I used boards from an old barn which was located at an abandoned farm on the outskirts of our town. I used three board size of 4 x 10 inches by 6 feet, which I got from the 25-foot board.

I warn you that if you are restoring the old hardwood you will stained, as this is a difficult and dusty. The first thing to do is get rid of all the nail with a hammer and pliers. This work should spend carefully as any metal remaining in the wood can ruin your tools in further processing. You can use a metal detector unless you have it there to ensure quality of work done. Then you need to use a sander with coarse sandpaper to remove debris from the surface of the wood.
