Well finally posting a project after lurking in the corners and watching everyone else’s. this table us born from a barn belonging to my great great grandfather. The frame of the barn was hand hewn oak 6×6 post and beam construction with pegged mortise and tenon joints. One reclaimed beam was a full
30 foot long. The table top started with what I believe are pine from the loft flooring and the beams and stretchers for the table came from the southern yellow pine full cut 2×6 rafters. Table top lifts off for moving and the legs are notched to accept the beams which are also notched. The stretchers are screwed to the biscuit joined table top. Both stretchers and beams are correspondingly notched to lock together as well. Four corner bracing triangles are screwed to table top and the legs to keep the table from racking side to side. Hope this makes sense in how it was constructed.
