I haven't done a something old is new again post forever. My husband traded some firewood for barn wood. They even threw in a few old fence posts.
He was excited to start a new project. A little cutting and sanding later a table slowly emerges. The project was made even more special because some of the woods working tools were his father's. Whenever we visited or they visited my husband and his father always worked on a woodworking project together.
I think my favorite part is when the old posts became table legs. I love old posts with all of their individual characteristics. Today's uniform posts have no history or personality.
