DIY Farmhouse Dining Table w/ Epoxy Inlays Using Reclaimed Barnwood

  • Published on Aug 9, 2018
  • This week I show you how to build a DIY farmhouse dining table using reclaimed barn wood lumber, featuring epoxy inlays. My friends asked me to build them a Parsons style table, and I came up with the idea to use reclaimed lumber, and pour pigmented epoxy into the voids. Let me know what you think about this DIY farmhouse table. Thanks!

    awesome vid. People (including myself) have no clue what goes into a handcrafted table like that. Good work man.

    Loving all the complaints that "it's not DiY cuzz I can't do this project with a clapped out hand drill and mah teeth"
    What do you want? Jonny demonstrated how to utilize outside resources (using the lumber yard's specialized industrial machines) and how to use fairly basic wood working power tools (router sled, table saw, jointer)
    It doesn't take a genius to realize that even "pros" sometimes need to borrow or rent a specialty tool to complete a job.

    Agreed. This one stretches beyond the definition of DIY. All those fancy tools and the legs aren't parallel. You can see it in final pic. I don't like that method of leg attachment for that reason. Crank the bolts down too much or twist the block and the legs are splayed. Epoxy fill is nice though. Wouldn't run that crap lumber through those tools unless you like buying and changing blades. Getting all the nails out can sometimes be impossible. Worked for a commercial mill shop and the toll on the planer and jointer knives was really costly.

      No, you can totally build this with two popsicle sticks and a broken hacksaw blade. That’s “real” DIY!

    Only issues with reclaimed wood is it's rarely straight and way overpriced.

    Table was ugly, just my honest opinion. He should watch how Japanese make their tables because you have to be a lot more artistic than that

    Wow expected a little more looks like an 8th grade wood shop project. Sorry for the harsh criticism but omg

  • Chris

    could be just me, but i dont see any beauty of this project using blue epoxy basically as filler. the water based finish on top, further takes away from recycled timber.
    additionally, nobody goes above 400 grit before applying any finish.
    i think you would have ended up with a much nicer result by using black resinous filler and finish with some oil or mixed oil/varnish, to make the character of the wood stand out. water poly is not quite fully clear/transparent, so has this "look" about it that is not quite right.
    the colored epoxies look ok on live-edge projects that dont sacrifice expensive reclaimed wood.
    it's your call of course. that's my opinion.

    That flawed table would convert into a nice carpenters bench. You know the kind with the peg holes and the wooden vice on the end. Go ahead and bang that out dude.

    I messed up the joints and gaps on this table, but no worries, it just so happens that I was building a second table all along! And I fixed the mistakes on that one. Erm...sadly, I can't show you the resolved mistakes, but I did spend the whole time recording the table that did not workout....for some reason.
    Lol, Yeah, sure Bob. Nice work either way.

    "DIY" video where you use thousands of dollars worth of equipment to make a table that doesn't even fit together correctly, then say you were worked on another table "in the background" yet never show the finished product. hmmmmmmm. not gonna lie, you suck a wood working. shame this has 8 million views.

    ~~~ Great video, lots of food for thought, I think I would put the epoxy in squirt bottles. Save up all your empty condiment bottles so you can probably throw them away when you’re done. I’ve been a house painter for years and I’ll tell you don’t use them damn foam brushes. Get the chip brushes it’s so much easier. Lots of love and pride went into your work great job.
