We cut down a large Ash tree back in 2011 and had it sawed into boards and some various other size stock for handles, etc. The tree was 30” in diameter and nearly 35’ to the first limb; straight and solid. The boards(lots of them!) have been drying in the barn since then. I’ve used some of the stock for mallet handles, wheelbarrow handles, and other small projects, but never the boards until now. This coffee table is made completely from those boards. No plywood or the likes. The Ash was easy to work with and mostly clear of any knots or defects.The table is for a family member who picked out the design. It is finished with Minwax stain and water based polyurethane.
