This is a rustic roughsawn table I made for my dinning room. It is made of wormy soft maple and I stained it with an Early American stain. I put 8 coats of Varathane high gloss polyurethane to seal it.

That is a family heirloom! Very nice work and it is so usable. That came out very nicely.

I really love your tables. I have been looking at making one for my home. I have designed a table in Sketchup hoping to use some barn siding for the top? Still not sure. Thanks for sharing your projects.
