My friend went to the lumber store and picked out nice shorts to be used on her table. Walnut, cherry, maple, poplar, and Peruvian walnut. We milled the edges, and biscuited them and strong backed them and she oiled the top and there you have it.

Nice job. It looks big enough. Just hope you don’t ever have to move it. I am curious about the oil that was used because that can be so critical when it comes to maintenance after you went to the trouble of making the darn thing. Where did the legs come from?

Thanks for asking danoaz, she bought the legs and the lumber store and she stained them different colors, she used Watco danis oil for the finish.

She got new shorts at the lumber store? It’s hard to tell because she’s standing behind that nice looking table you built.

To freddyaudiophile – a strong back is just a board screwed to the under side of a table that holds the planks together.

To Bothus- no silly, lumber stores that sell hardwood have boards 4 feet long or so and they are sold as shorts.
