Well done! I really like the heavy substructure which looks like timber framing. Great idea for the through tenons so it can be broken down to move.

Is the top also reclaimed barn wood?

What method did you use to flatten the top and sand it?

Those massive leggs look prety amaizing!

Thanks to all for the kind words…

Dale.. I plained each board to the same thickness… then glued up three sets of two each (roughly 10 inches) that way I could run them through the plainer again… then I glued up everything and sanded…

Yes top is reclaimed as well.. the breakdown is a must as it weighs around 450 lbs. When its put together…

This is a nice looking table and it has a lot of character.
