A quarter sawn white oak table I built for a friend. She talked to me about doing this over a year ago and I found this design from 1900 – her house was built in 1910 and is a historical building. She wanted something that would match the time frame, while still being modern. We put off doing it until she could figure out a way to make it really work and she contacted me about the end of October when she had lined someone up to make the legs out of metal. I did the top and a metal worker welded the base. The size is just under 8 feet long and 40” wide. This thing weighs a ton and won’t be moved around a lot.
The oak was stained with General Finishes Antique Oak and finished with their high performance water based poly. This was the first time I used these and I liked them. The stain really helped to bring out the ray flecks and water based poly was pretty easy to apply and has a nice finished look. The colors of the top are different in their backlit room than they were in my shop though! Overall, it was a nice little project
