Woods from old family farmhouse (demolished). Chestnut (extinct), Oak, Walnut, Poplar, Sycamore (wormy & spalted), red cedar and cherry.

All traditional joinery and all wood except drawer sliders and rollers.

Yes I know it is preferred to finish BB Tables in mineral oil.

Yes it is a county fair exhibit.

It is very heavy.

This is a bit of giveback to all I learn from Lumberjocks. You guys are the greatest.

2 more pics added showing the farmhouse wood. Red cedar used only on the legs to contrast the walnut. It is soft and unsuitable for the top.

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

Great wood combination! I like the colors. It really looks heavy. Good thing you install casters. Well done.
