I made this table for a woman who over the years has become like a grandmother to me.I built it for her 92nd birthday. The wood was cut and milled by her father sometime in the 70’s on her farm here in Southern Illinois and has been sitting up in one of her barns since.I have been using this wood for a few years .
There was alot of handwork done on it and even used Winnonas dead husbands spokeshaves to chamfer the legs and trim under the aprons etc.
It measures 67w x 14d x 31t.The finish on it is french polished garnet shellac with the top being grain filled with pummice,followed by a little paste wax.
pics are from my non smart phone.
