How To Build this Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table
Creating the Planked Top for our Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table
I wanted a beautiful planked top with the pieces creating an interesting design. I started by snapping a chalk line across the center in 2 directions. Turned out the circles were imperfect, but this gave me at least a good straight start line. Start by cutting 2 pieces of wood with a 45 degree angle on the end so that 2 pieces fit together to make a 90 degree angle. Like 1 corner of a photo frame. Then I fill in this section by following with the same cut and laying them behind the first. I lucked out. When I got to the end I was able to grab one of the triangle scraps that I cut off the ends, using my compound miter saw, to make the 45 degree angles. Lay these pieces in place and repeat the pattern on the opposite side.
