How about this. We have a cherry top table that is about 37”W x 77”L. One solid piece.
It was cut into three years ago to make a drop leaf table. Now I’m going to make it into a solid top again.
Now I have some old hinges to use on other projects.
I was able to get thick, farm table legs, and will create a new apron out of pallet wood i’ve found.
Will post a pic once the table is complete.

What kind of pallet wood are you using for the apron? Around my area pallets are usually oak and I’m not seeing oak and cherry complimenting each other very well. Maybe others will disagree, I am just saying what I think.

You are right. – should have stated the base and legs will be distress painted, and the table top natural.

Good luck on the table.

I’ve got some 19” cherry planks 12’ long.
