The wood was given to me by my cousin who owns .
I’ve made a bunch of boxes from some of his lumber as well. The top is recaimed Hickory and the legs and apron are made from reclaimed walnut.

Very Nice job! I like the taper on the legs as well, very suttle.

I’ve got some nice Hickory that has been waiting patiently for me to use . This is great inspiration for me to “git ‘er done”! Thank you : )

Gorgeous table, I never knew Hickory could look so beautiful. What kind of stain did you use?

No stain. The top is a 50/50 mix of BLO/MS with wax. The apron and legs have WB poly. This table will see very little use. It will be sold thru a gallery and will probably be used to display pieces. The table height is only 28 inches. I was instructed to leave as much of the rough character as I could. That is why you can see a lot of the rough sawn marks. It came to me as barn lumber from one of the horse farms in the area. Didn’t even know the species until I ran it thru the planer. The legs were walnut 3×6 rough sawn beams.

NICE Work, I appreciate a classic work like this. Great lines and simple beauty. Sometimes the greatest charm and detail can be executed in the simplest form, you’ve pulled it off. BTKS

That Hickory looks stunning. Such wild grain.

The table is a great composition.
