Good Day, This is a Greene and Greene inspired dining table that I built from Manitoba Ash. Bur oak and ash is so plentiful around here that much of it wood is either used for firewood or sometimes sent to the land fill. I attempted to make a table that was both rustic and graceful. This is the first table of what I hope will be a standard production item in my one man shop. I think that the next table will be more “perfect”, in that I will use only clear lumber with nice straight and tight grain. Making a table rustic is much harder than doing it with select wood – the time to fill knot holes and sand out tear out from planning interesting grain is too much work. So, I hope you fine Lumber Jocks and anyone else can be part of my focus group to help me determine if the table is both graceful and rustic and do think it would sell. Thank you for your time and I do appreciate any feed back.
