Commission piece for a very nice couple just outside of town. They asked for a table that was about 4 feet by 8 feet, and to match the trim work in the house. After just a few sketches we agreed on this mission style farm table and chose red oak for the material.

The table top is 1” stock and the undercarriage and legs are 2” stock. This is one sturdy table!

Sounds like the next project(s) will be at least 8 chairs for them.

Hey Dustin, long time no see, I started hand scraping it with a homemade tool, then used a random orbit sander with 60 grit, then 100, 150, 220. Then about 6 coats of pre catalyzed lacquer sanding between coats with 320 grit. Finally 3 coats of Johnson’s paste wax. Now I have to line up some help to deliver it on Monday.

I’m using sand paper from Industrial abrasives, I found out about that company here on LJ’s, they are amazing and very affordable. All sorts of items for your sanding needs.

Thats a cool talbe I’ve never seen a table bread boarded in the center. I thought it was a center spot for a leaf at first. Will that design cause any seasonal twisting on the top?
