My sister and brother in law had their 25th wedding anniversary last year so I decided to make them a dining table as they just had a plywood with folding legs table for years. Anyhow I took way longer than I thought as life and work interrupted my progress so I gave it to them at her birthday party last night instead. She loved it to say the least. Beetle kill pine top with water based poly finish. I originally had plans for breadboard ends then decided to try breadboards in the middle of the table and it worked out well and she loves the design so that worked out good. Think I will stick to smaller projects for a while as my wife is happy to have the garage back. lol Many thanks for the advice for fellow Lumber jocks for help with finishing etc. Especially Monte Pittman.
