I made this dining table for my step-son and his wife. It’s all in elm, from a tree that was felled locally, planked and kept in a garage until the owner’s wife insisted he get rid of it. I was first to answer his ad in the local paper. I fabricated the legs from two 2” thicknesses, biscuited together and then routed a vee down the joint. The top is framed with two floating panels. The second picture shows, what now looks like, an over-thick panel maybe. But why plane away all that beautiful and cost£ly wood? I finished the table with Danish oil and finally wax.
I didn’t make the chairs.
