Here is a table that I made a year ago for someone at work. It has 2 extensions that take it out to 96” long and it is 40” wide with bread board ends. I also make two benches to go along it. the finish is Mirror Cote Epoxy with several cotes of poly and finished with paste wax and steal wool.

thanks for looking and as always questions are welcome.

It turned out really well! Nice way to honor the history of that wood, and preserve it for future generations!

Super nice, great looking table. Since it was made with 120 year old wood, I guess it’s an instant antique. Either way, beautiful work.
