Nice, right? That’s a lot of tables! We also had a neighbor redo their backyard fence, so we have a large pile of weathered wood. I have 2 shutter style bi-fold doors, and after cutting them up it gives me 8 pieces to work with.
The first shutter table I built was with the Kreg jig and screws. This wood was a bit more brittle, so I decided to break out the nail gun and wood glue.
The shutters had already been painted white, so I decided to paint the spindles and fencing to match. I love how they turned out. The fencing has deep divots along the natural grain from weathering outdoors. It gives it a really sculptural look and feel.
