Distressed horse stable tack room table- a rugged, made to look as a used table, from the stable. This table is built tough.

Wood: Left over Pine construction framing material. Construction was traditional heavy duty, the top was carved, Southwestern, with a CNC.
The “rust” like appearance of the horse head and side stars, were CNC carved, then finished, to resemble “rust”. The bottom stretcher is cactus spine with a .5” threaded rod inside. The “rusted stars” cover the locking nuts.

Finish- milk paint distressed process.

I do like the table1

I do NOT like the term distressed!! It has an “EXPERIENCED” mystique about it!

Are you sure that’s not Alder wood?

Good job with the faux rusted finish.

Nice work DW.

Great work, DW. We had horses until a recent downsize. That would have fit right in in the tack room in the barn at our ranch.
