This table was challenging to build with the wood I was provided. Most of the boards were twisted and I couldn’t cut the top to flatten it. So I jointed and planed the bottoms to make them all the same thickness. I joined them all together with pocket holes on the bottom which worked great. Gluing old barnwood is not a good idea since they can move differently over the seasons. Not a big problem in Colorado, but I felt better using screws. If I had nice stright boards, I would build many of these tables, they have a nice warm look to them. I finished the top with wax. The tapered legs are pine stained to match. The little bench was upholstered by the client. The chairs she bought match the color well.
