Rustic tables from reclaimed wood



I live in the country and have 20 acres there is a county road with powerlines going along side it throughout the length of my field. Birds sit on the powerlines and do there thing hence russian olive and elm trees have been planted by the birds, they have been growing around 35 years and started to grow into thew power lines . The pud got tired of trimmiong and this year cut them all down leaving me with a largfe amount of wood, After looking at it i noticed it had some rather interesting patterns so i decided to throw togatrher a couple of easy end tables etc. I just made them up as went along looking for pieces that looked interesting, It was real easy and the end product turned out better than expected a store in a nearby town wanted two to display at one of the booths they have and i have had alot of offers to buy and good comments on them, Just goes to show one persons junk maybe another persons treasure and it was better than letting all that wood go to waste
