I recently finished a new walnut table top and bench for our family table. The top was made from rough cut walnut that I milled and doweled/glued together. I finished both the table and bench with Arm-R-Seal (Satin).

My dad helped me with the base as I don’t know how to weld. We used 2” square steel tubing for the bases and I screwed them to the top through elongated holes (for wood movement). I used Flood Penetrol to coat the steel base and then Satin Minwax Poly (wipe on) on top of the Penetrol as it was very glossy.

My wife is please with how it turned out and so therefore, I am pleased. :)

Thanks for looking!

That is really fine looking. It looks perfect in decor and I like the bench and the chairs together too. You and the welder did a really beautiful job. You made a great team ;)

Thanks! We found the chairs at Sam’s Club and couldn’t believe it cause they matched. It worked out perfectly.

Wow, great work, this is one beatiful table. Congrats to you & your father on a job well done. Nice that the wife is happy too.
In picture number 2 the light shining across the top shows how flat & flawless it is. Super finish!
