I build this table from heart pine that came out of an old house’s attic. It was hard as rock an difficult to plane. It was literally separating within the grain pattern of itself. But the results were great. Stained with Early American and finished with serveral coats of laquer.

Wow, that’s a great result given the material used. It’s beautiful, but so splintery! A fine table!

It looks really nice. Plus made with a quality of wood that’s almost impossible to find other than on river bottoms and through recycling, right?

Fantastic table! Like the stain and finish. Great job on recycling the wood.
