Here’s a tall / pub-style 4’x4’ dining table, constructed using cypress timbers I had laying around, as well as some barnwood boards and thick cherry boards given to me by my uncle. I didn’t really have a plan for this… I just kinda started cutting. The bracing could’ve been a bit more elegant if I had planned it out better, but I’m pretty happy with it overall.

It’s HEAVY. Took a bit of work getting it through our front door, but worth the effort. ;)

Now I have to build some chairs.

LOVE this!
We’re starting our dining table for the log house – this would be great in our space!
