This table is made from solid Oregon Douglas Fir.
The wood was salvaged from some logs that were going to be firewood untill i milled them into 8/4 lumber.
The legs are 5” x 5” solid cut from some 6” x 12” beams.
This thing is heavy! The wood is cool to work with. I found that if you use a random orbital sander on the wood it sands the luighter colored farter than the darker wood (which is denser since it is the winter wood or the darker rings on the end grain) This makes for a cool effect, almost like a hand planed feal.
I did this sanding trick all over the table so every piece feals very cool. I finished it with 400 grit and then sealed it with some linseed oil. Ill let it soak up some sun and get some color then i might seal it with some poly so it shines forever. I love the look of sun aged, linseed oil finished doug fir. Its as orange as a pumkin.
Enjoy the pics
