Skinny Hallway Table – The most difficult part of building a recycled and reclaimed wood board is finding the perfect pieces of wood. Assembling wooden pieces of different origins is similar to completing a puzzle, but a unique result and conversation that it inspires are definitely worth it. To streamline the process, assemble the pieces in their raw positions before installing permanently to ensure there are no missing pieces. Find two of the 4 by 4 posts up at their ends and lay one of the 1 inches by 4 inches together through the top, with the posts right at the ends. Pre-drill four holes evenly spaced across the top plate and at each station.
Join the skinny hallway table using the 3-inch wood screws. Repeat for the other set of messages. Mount the tabletop face down on the work surface. Organize all the meetings in the planned order, so that there are no gaps or spaces. Place the four 1/2-inch by 4-inch joints spaced evenly across them and screw these plates to each tabletop with two 1-inch wood screws. Flip devices equipped with one and set evenly spaced on the bottom of the tabletop. Pre-drill eight holes through each set of messages on the tabletop, being careful not to pierce the tabletop surface. Place the posts on the table with the 1 1/2-inch wood screws.
Turn over the right side of the skinny hallway table and fill all the holes or open spaces in the table top with the clear drying putty. Allow time for the putty to dry and then cover the entire table with a layer of sealer. Wait two hours for the sealer to dry then apply another coat. Repeat the process for four or five layers due to the intensive use most tables receive. Barn wood makes a great tabletop, although due to its typically thin nature it must be stacked in at least one layer of a good solid table.
