The lumber was from a house built in the early 18 Hundred’s the table top is made from the floor joist and the legs are made from the rafter tails. The table measures 4 foot by 9 foot and seats 10 easily.

This is a fine looking table,but… I think the way you connected the end boards might create a problem for you in the future. This is a potential problem many new woodworkers overlook. Here’s a link to help you understand.

Sorry for the ” many new woodworkers overlook” statement ,By looking at your other project you are obviously not a new woodworker. Perhaps you made some adjustments for wood movement that are not apparent in your photos.
Happy holidays .
