California redwood, reclaimed ambrosia maple and reclaimed black walnut from a barn in Tennessee table. Starting to build out my Etsy Store…. ( https://www.etsy.com/shop/wemakenicethings ).

Majority of the wood is redwood and in fact is made from fencing material. I planed each slat down to 1/2” using my Dewalt Planer and RIDGID Jointer and then made three layers by crossing boards at 90 degrees. Hopefully this will prevent warping. Legs are removable via the normal apron intersections.

Initial sanding was done using my new RIDGID 6” orbital sander. I got much better results this time. My last table was made using a 1/4” sheet sander and the surface had visible waves when I was finished. The top was wet sanded with a hand rubbed polyurethane and then waxed with Johnson’s paste wax. All in all a very fun project. Can’t wait for someone to buy this one so I can create the next…

That’s a truly marvelous. Well executed. Way to go.
