You could cover those missing knots with a “Dutchman’s patch”…. suits the style too

Amazingly beautiful. I would add that filling those knot holes would be criminal. They. Add to the piece’s appeal.

Thank you all very much.

Of course, the finish is 4 coats of Waterlox.

Fantastic work.Oak wood dining tables are easy to maintain as any other wood furniture.Oak dining tables reflect an air of sophistication, grace and elegance. Most fine dining tables and chairs will be made of a hard wood like oak or mahogany.
