I built this table for my wife, she bought bar stools and wanted a round table for our kitchen. It started with finding and repurposing the cast iron industrial pedastool. The table top, base and riser blocks are made from clear vertical grain Douglas fir. We love the patina of the pedastool, so I cleaned it with mineral spirits and sprayed it with laqcour. Then there was the challenge of making the wood look old, but keeping its natural beauty. The finishing of this project is what I am most proud of. I accomplished my goals for how I wanted the table to look.
