A friend of mine found a couple tables she liked on-line, and asked if I could re-create something similar. The condition was that I had to make it for less than the advertised price, and to her color/size specifications. The main design of the table was that of a simple top with wrought iron legs, and a “hand carved live edge.”
Dimensions are 67” x 35(ish)” x 2.” The wood used is maple, with one coat of Zinseer SealCoat, diluted 50%, 2 coats of General Finishes’ ‘Candlelite’ gel, and four coats of their “High Performance Top Coat”
I don’t have a jointer, so I had to joint the boards with my trusty Woodriver #6, which I find is one of my favorite tools!
I am happy with the way it turned out, and my friend also likes it which matters the most.
