A few months ago I found some wood on CL and bought a few pieces. I was told that this prticular piece was curly maple – I honestly don’t have a clue whether he was truthful or not but frankly I don’t care. It had so much character I couldn’t resist.
The other good thing was that it was FLAT ! No twist, no center bow and it planed out beautiful.
I ended up with enough good wood for the top and the side and end skirts. The table is 5’ long, 10 1/2” wide and 36” tall.
Finished it with 6 coats high gloss water base polyeurathane with painted grey poplar legs with the polyeurathane over the paint.
