I built this table out of 100 year old barn wood from Naples, NY. I found the coffee table base and bought it from the neighbor of a friend of my families, when I was dropping my daughter off for a play date! My wife was rolling her eyes, but I really thought that the base would look fantastic with this top and I was right!

The table itself is 4’6” long, 27” wide, and 20” tall. I sanded it and applied Danish oil, then 5 coats of poly. I put it on Facebook and asked of anyone was interested and sold it later that day! I wouldn’t have minded keeping it, but my wife doesn’t want it. Where is is located now is where she is expecting me to build her window seat and built in shelves.

I used Danish oil and poly. I know there are a lot of people who knock polyurethane, but I thinknit provides a great finish

Have your say...
