60” x 36” kitchen table made for a customer from construction grade stock. The legs were turned individually from 4×4 white wood. The top was made from 2×8’s planed down to 1 1/8” and ripped down to 6 1/2” with a 1/2” tongue and groove for a 6” reveal. The breadboard ends were cut from 2×4’s and pinned at each board. The top was stained and finished with poly and dark brown Briwax to hide the plastic look of the the poly. The legs were painted, sanded then finished with the Briwax.

looks terrific..amazingly clean turnings for construction wood..hope it was all kiln dried, or big problems await..especially pinning the breadboards. Have my fingers crossed for you. It looks wonderful.

I know about the shrinking, had it on the first couple of tables I made. I get the boards down to about 11% (+/- 1%) before I start the build.
