Dining room set I built (almost) entirely by hand. The wood is Kentucky Hickory, solid wood construction throughout. The entire construction of the chairs and bench is hand cut mortise and tenon joinery. The chairs have a solid 2 1/8” set, hand carved as well. The top of the table was entirely hand scraped and smoothed. Yes, it is very heavy, but also very comfortable.
The picture of the wood shavings is a couple hours of hand planing the seats BEFORE starting to carve. You guys know what I’m talking about.
It is finished off with several coats of Behlen Rock Hard table top varnish, and man, it is extremely durable. (My three kids have out it to the test).
Thanks for looking, best regards!
