Wood taken from a 40 to 50 year old 24 stall horse barn in middle Tennessee. Table top is maple and white oak (white oak is center board), which were the hay loft floor boards, side skirts and braces are red oak, hosre stall braces, and the legs are white oak, taken from the ceiling rafters of the barn. Top is biscuit jointed and sanded as to leave the character of the original mill work of the wood (note section of bark still on wood). Table ends are breadboarded with Maple. Side skirts and braces are pocket screwed and lag bolts hold the legs to the skirts with white oak cross braces. Demisions of the table are 8’ X 3’. Plans were obtained commercially but modified to fit my needs. 6 Coats of clear satin poly for protection and Watco oil for the legs.
