Another rustic (also known as “minimal effort”) table. I love the natural look of Cherry with sapwood and bark still attached. This pieces has a nice interesting crack and beautiful sapwood. I get to use my sawn scraps and unsalable pieces for my personal projects…what a luxury! It’s completely 6/4 Cherry that I sanded down, coated with mineral oil, and poly’d. Took me about 3 hours total not including drying time.
My sister’s family has a nice gathering area in their finished basement with a couch and loveseat. There is a coffee table for the couch but nothing for the loveseat so everyone fights over footstool space. I figured this would solve the problem and it did. That it matches the loveseat is just a nice bonus! Hope you like it.
