If you’re looking to add some character to your space, there is no better way to do it than using rustic furniture. Of course, you don’t have to fill the whole place with a rustic design. A good start would be a table. It fits great absolutely anywhere.
Whether it’s dining, sofa, end, or coffee table, rustic tables are unique, elegant, and cheap – especially if you plan to make one by yourself.
When crafting rustic furniture, you have a lot of options to choose from. The most-used types of wood are reclaimed wood; weathered wood, or you can use some of the locally available harvested woods like pine, aspen, or cedar wood. Each one of them features its own characteristics, texture, gnarls, and knots, but the strength and longevity, too.
If you don’t have a do-it-yourself attitude, or you’re simply questioning your creativity and skills, there are a lot of rustic tables crafted by artisans. We’ve made a round-up “best-of” lists of our choices and you can check them by clicking on the thumbnails below this intro or in the Rustic tables section of the website.
Anyway, we encourage you to take a deeper look into each section of our website just to get a spark of inspiration.
The Tools section contains everything you should know about axes, saws, drills, planers, rasps, chainsaws, milling machines, lathes, drills, and other machines. We’ve also covered finishing materials like sandpapers, waxes, and oils.
If you click on the Tips & Tricks section of our website, you’ll get the most important information for beginners. So if you want to avoid beginner’s mistakes – learn from us. Or like the famous quotation says – “A smart man learns from his mistakes. A wise one learns from the mistake of others”.
DIY section of the website contains the projects I’ve finished myself – my wife and me, actually – so don’t expect too much of it (just trying to be decent, although, we all know it’s just a fake modesty).
Believe me, if I can make a rustic table, anyone can!
