It’s official, I finally finished the benches for my dining room table and the whole set is now complete, just in time for the holiday. I am excited to have all of the family over for Thanks Giving for our first holiday meal using the new dining room set. Have a happy Thanks Giving every one.

Thanks every one for your comments and Happy Thanks Giving day to you all. Answer to a few questions; The finish I use is just Minwax clear gloss polyurethane about 4 coat average. The table top is 4’ wide 8’ long. Thanks again every one.

Todd, that is beautiful, love the Cedar and the finish.
Bet it doesn’t get moved around very much.

Great job.
