I built a log kitchenette table. Pine slab top- live edge, log base. I still need to put the finish on- simple clear polyurethane. I take terrible photos- sorry for the poor quality. :( Like the picnic table I used logs that I cut and dried, and slab pine donated by my neighbor that he had stored in his garage. After I had the table finished, my daughter claimed it, however her boyfriend is 6’4” tall so I had to add the bottom logs to raise up the table so he can fit under it. LOL I guess that’s the beauty of rustic furniture….......

I love the natural edge tables.
You do very well with the tools you have.

Just read your profile. Welcome! These projects are pretty cool, working with what you have available to you, in tools and material. I say well done and a great example for beginners, what you can do with limited resources. These look very well made…................

Excellent work, rivergirl, on all of your posted projects. Keep it up.
By the way, feel free to post pictures of some of your Arts & Crafts stuff. There’s a lot of us here who like to see how some of the oldtimers put stuff together also.

Thank you all. I have a few pics of my furniture and will try and take some more later. I have some limbert and some stickely and some really cool built ins of mahogany that are orginal to the house. I also have some chairs, a settle and a bookcase custom made for me by a friend in British Columbia. He does the most beautiful work with quarter sawn oak/amonia fuming.

This also is good and it looks like it might have been fun to build.
