I am currently working on this table, am nearly finished. I got the wood from trees in my backyard. Base is pine, top is cherry. I still have to add more finish to the top.

Really nice table. Turned out great and a good design also.

Amazing piece, the light frame highlights the Cherry. A long bench to match would look great.

This table is sold. So Alba, no matching bench for this one. :) It was a pretty chunk of wood. Made a nice table.
