What are the bowtie shaped inlays on the top? Is that joinery to the legs? Also, what kind of stain/finish did you use?

It looks great!

Very nice job on recycling old wood. I love the ideal of taking something what looks the life of it has been used and making a beautiful piece out of it.
Nice job.
