Hi, This is my first project – it was built using reclaimed timber from station pier in south melbourne. The finish is four coats of danish oil. I really like the detail in the timber of the top

Very impressive wood species and you did a great job with the grain matching on the top boards : )
I like the simple design that lets the wood do all of the talking !

That’s an awesome looking table, the top came out perfect. Why can’t I find timber that nice?
