After using a cheap plastic card table as my only table for nearly two years I decided it was time for a change. I had seen some large wooden tables that I liked and figured that I could make one myself. I also used reclaimed wood to make this table so it’s a bit cooler looking (and environmentally friendly!).

The finished product is heavy, but not too bad. I’m using Douglas Fir which is a bit soft. Marks will show on the table, but to me that is okay. You may want to adjust your wood choice if you like something different.

He goes through the necessary steps on instructables so you can construct your own reclaimed wood table.
