Needed a kitchen table. Took a bit more work than it looked like it would. Keep the natural edges.
So far the cats and fiance’ have enjoyed scratching and putting hot plates on it. I feel like my father.

Finish is just that ol’ zinzer varnish.. It looks better than my joint really are. I love it. But I muscle my joinery.
I never could take the time like ya see in magazines. Hey and the Lyptus was cheap. Try it out.

130 bucks. Oh yea and 3 long nights. The wood was an engagement gift. When they say what would you like
as a gift? Why wood of course.
