This is a dining table and bench I made about a year ago. It features a 2 inch thick reclaimed heart pine top with breadboard ends. The natural character was left on the top and was finished with a medium colored custom dye. It was hard to stain the reclaimed top, but that’s what my client wanted. The base is made from 16/4 and 12/4 solid poplar. All of the joinery is mortise and tenon and gluing up the leg systems are almost like a puzzle but it’s worth it because of the strength and integrity they provide!! The color on the bases are a multi step process. I use a country white satin acrylic paint sprayed on. Then I sand and distress the base to give character. Then I apply a dark walnut danish oil to give a nice aged patina. The whole table is then finished with a satin acrylic poly sprayed on. The overall size is 44 inches wide X 96 inches long.
