This is a conference table for a local church. It is 12 feet long and 54 inches wide. The cross in the top is an inlay of black walnut. This project took about a year to complete as I worked on it a few hours a night and on weekends.
It is made totally of quarter sawn red oak from a tree on my clients farm. The tree was downed in a wind storm about 5 years ago and it was sawed into lumber and air dried for four years.
I have blogged it’s construction from rough sawn lumber to finished product. Read my blog entries here with the first blog.
The finish is five coats of satin wipe on poly.
I am happy that this one is done and my client is REALLY glad it is done also.
Thanks for viewing the project and reading the blog.
(Added later) The two side tables were also part of the project. I will post some closeups of the grain on these two smaller tables. The flecks are stunning.
