This is another two hour table, not including the watco oil finish that takes another half hour. It is made of black oak I cut last year from Salvage Logs.

Beautiful piece Ron! What joinery did you use on the legs and how’d you join the support to the top?

I really like the shape and the grain display on the top. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Rob and Deb, I use pocket holes, screws and glue underneath where they are not visible unless you turn it over.

Just beautiful Ron. I love tables and benches made like that. I wish I had a wider planer and sander to do it. Nice. jockmike

Great table. That Oak has some nice graining.

Got to like the rugged look but it is still very clean looking at the same time.

That’s some beautiful wood! And, Ron, nice work creating the table.

Question: How did you mill that top on a planer or large belt sander?

Thanks everyone. Tom, I have a 15” planer that works well as long as I keep the material under 14- 3/4” wide.

Great looking table. That is exactly what I am looking to start doing here. My issue, one of many is how I am going to fasten the legs/support to the bottom. Can you describe how you did it to this table? Any chance can you take a picture and post it? Thanks.

Moose44, I use pocket hole and screws on the underside so you don’t really see them. Very simple and easy.
