Tthe wood is white oak, apparently it was floors in the loft of the barn. The family that I built the table for had the farm since the 1800s and just recently lost it. So they wanted to have something in their home from the farm. They really wanted to preserve the saw marks as a reminder, so I didn’t do any planing accept where i jointed boards together. the wood is 1” thick and I glued up 1×1 piece at the front of the sides to make it look like a 2×2 legs. the drawers were made from solid pine with dove tails. I used restoration hardware for drawer pulls which I had for many years and they were rusted in spots and worked great for this piece. I used 3 coats of semigloss poly for finish.
