And we have our first of the 8 slabs of 375 year old white oak selected for a project – one simple coffee table matched with the legs shown in white oak. A basic square apron and single drawer.
The bulk of the work comes in to deal with the punky wood – strengthening the surface and deciding what to keep and what to peal off around the edges. Then – its sanding, scraping, rubbing, and finishing!
Given how much we have going on, not sure exactly when this will fit in!? Soon hopefully …
