What once was an old barn floor is now a 10 foot table. Coffee tables and benches to compliment the set are in the making. Thank-you Jan and Sally for this opportunity.

Very nice. Our barn floors never looked this nice.

Gorgeous old looking piece, with such history and character I love it. The Heaviness reminds me of the old tables I saw in some resaurants in Deutchland when I was stationed there.

I love that big heavy look, and it looks to match the room perfectly.

Good job. Nice save!

I really like these type tables. The color of yours is great. What type of finish did you use?

You built a really nice table from some great salvaged wood. What type of lumber is it?

This is a reborn elm tree table. Some boards were 15” wide. It has a clear lacquer finish. Thanks for the comments everyone.

That first pic it almost looks like it has a lil spalting in it, I like the contrast between the lighter top and the darker legs and apron, I worked with an old American elm once and found it to be a very solid wood..

Nice farm table, how about a couple of matching benches :)

Be Well
