My mom recently asked for a dinning room table. What mom wants, mom gets.

My dad and I worked together to get the table done by Easter. The whole table is built from one large cherry log I acquired last year. Time was somewhat important on this project so all the wood was run through a vacuum kiln (vacuum kiln=good piece of gear).

Anyway, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything so I thought I would share.

What are some people doing with the knots. I leave mine open. I think it gives a more rustic look. Do some customers want them epoxy filled. See the knots but smooth ?
Just wondering ?
