This sofa table was built out of old oak barn wood. This was an interesting project because the customer wanted as much of the natural edging as possible. There was no sanding, only scraping to remove some of soft exterior, and I applied a ton of poly. This thing soaked it up like crazy.
I kept calling it the ugly sofa table the whole time I was building it, but it looks pretty good in their family room.

Well done, I like it.
Is there a way to make the fresh cut edges look old? I can’t imagine that the top pieces were the exact length you needed yet the edges look the same color as the rest of the table. Did you have to do anything special?

I did have an issue with that. Believe it or not, I just hit them with a little Min Wax Special Walnut stain and they blended in pretty good.
