My neighbour tore up his centuries old wooden floor and were about to just throw it out.

I had a better idea. Why not turn some of the boards into a dining table?

All the wood is reclaimed, black-stained and oiled
The legs are turned on a lathe, shaped with a router and then put together with mortise and tenon joints.

Tabletop and legs are then screwed together for easier transportation.

Nice table, I like using free quality wood, brings new life and beauty to wood that is being discarded. I just brought home some 6 by 6 oak beams that had been used for dunnage transporting steel beams from my sons workplace. Nice staining and finish on the table as well.

Nice table, and always nice to see old wood get new life. What kind of wood is it?
