Has taken about 1 yr from log to table but just waiting for the finish to dry to move it back in the house. The table is made from Mango which was salvaged from land being cleared early 2012. I milled the lumber with an Alaskan Mill and dried in a solar kiln. 3 months to get from 38% down to 8% with nothing but solar power.
Measure roughly 36” x 60” 3 boards were glued to make the top then recessed to join the legs with the end grain showing. For now just glue and dowels secure the legs but I am thinking of adding pocket screws for a little more strength.
Would have been finished about 4 months ago but I tried adding poly on the danish oil finish but didn’t like how it looked so hours and hours of sanding later re-finished with just danish oil.
Thanks for looking
