This is the hardest project to date as I’m still working on it. Working in the pub due to it being 6 degrees outside and an unheated garage. The client wanted to use a tree they cut down from there own tree farm over a year ago. Kiln and drying the wood to planing, cutting, sanding for hours. I have built complete houses, bar rooms, offices, media rooms faster and easier than this trestle table. I’m now in the finishing of the top with 10 coats of Rust-Oleum polyurethane each coat sanded with 1500 grit paper and 0000 steel wool. The table is solid cherry the base measures 39” x 62” to hold the massive top of 84” X 48” by 1” thick. I have a new love, understanding and appreciation of woodworking also the mistakes and pains. I only hope and pray that this table will last the client through generations of great dinners.
