This table was crafted for a family who has long tradition of milling lumber. My client’s grandpa milled this lumber used in this dining table many many years ago. It has been stored in the barn for many years and recently lives on in their dining room. The lumber is true deminsional lumber and has all the character that circle sawn lumber is known for. The dimensions are 54 inches wide by 30 inches tall. The stain is a custom blend based on the specifications of my client. It is finished with a satin acrylic sprayed on poly. To honor her late grandpa, we carved his initials into the table with a cross, as he was a devout Christian. My client wanted it to look like he sat there and carved it with a pocket knife early in his life. That was a great touch and tribute to her family. I am proud to craft this table for this awesome family!

Thats one solid looking table you have made.
Its very similar to one I am making for No1 Son, he wanted a design so that nobody had to straddle a leg or have their feet restricted by a leg whe eight people sat at it.
