This afternoon I've been working on the rustic tables from Western Cedar. I'm using long ring-shanked pole barn nails to secure the parts. In order to drive them in with the least difficulty, pilot holes are drilled first from the inside as shown in the photo. While nails are usually disparaged in the making of fine furniture, there is an any-thing-goes quality to rustic work that can be liberating and creative.
