My Neice wanted a rustic kitchen table. All the wood I found at my dads place. He had a hemlock tree cut down and some of the wood was left laying around outside for a few years and it became very rustic looking so I decided to use that wood.

I finished the legs with satin varethane. The top has three coats of epoxy, four coats of satin varethane and then polished with two coats of a beeswax solution.

The top is 84” x 33”.

Awesome work Sean. Your table design is definitely rustic and well proportioned. Your Niece will love it.

Looks like you might have also milled it yourself? I’m sure she will be happy with your gift of love and craftsmanship.

Thought I was reading a blog. LOL! Thanks!

Sorry Dom you get married too often. I don’t have enough wood for a couple more weddings.

No didn’t mill the wood myself. Didn’t have the saw at that point.
I have shortened the narrative and kept it simple.

Will maybe do a blog someday on it.

Good job Sir.
