I did not originally build this table…but it is the 3rd table i have rebuilt since our move back to Napa. When we moved down to take care of my mom we had to get rid of a lot of furniture…because we were moving into my mom’s full house…so several pieces of wooden furniture sat outside under tarps…in the hot sun…i refused to trash them and i am glad

This little table was given to us by my wife’s sister…we have been back a year and I am slowly finishing all those “move back” projects…

This table top had.warped and broken up…i had to break lots of the pieces off and reglue them…others j just filled…the top has three coats of oil (?)...

The bottom was fine. There was some light water damage on the bottom of the legs which needed light sanding and gave the whole thing a fresh coat of paint.

The last picture is a bonus shot…

Nice restoration on this Matt. You were wise not to trash it. I love the amber tone the oil provided this maple. As for the pictures, no problem, it helps me stretch and loosen up my neck muscles!

Wow, Matt, nice save on that table top. It looks better than new!!

Won’t that hole allow a lot of water in??

Good effort Matt in refreshing older projects and I’m sure that the crink in my neck will pass in a couple of days. In regards to the bonus pic, not knowing for sure which side is up, I’m having difficulty identifying what it is. How ‘bout a clue?

Tongue oil? Dang. You know how many beetle tongues it takes to make a quart of that stuff… ;0)

Seriously, nice save and great color.
