All lumber used for this table came from a local farm that the owner was born and raised in. Her parents passed away and she inherited it. Her husband decided before it was demolished he wanted to use the wood for a present for her to keep those memories alive. She is 65 years old and her parents built the house when they were in their mid 20s. A lot of history in that house. The legs are 4” x 4”, the top is 3/4” thick. I added the 1” strip down the outer edge for more support. This is the first time I tried an under lapping bread board on the ends. It didn’t turn out to well. He liked it so I was in the good with him, lol ! The table measures 6’ x 40” wide x 30” high. Very light sanding and not to dark of a stain. It was the patina of the wood that gave this table it’s rustic look. Wished I had more of this wood to work with. But he is not letting any of it go.
Thanks for looking!
