My fiancĂ© wanted a big dining room buffet. So she got this. Everything is solid red oak from trees her dad felled to clear ground for a cabin. The dimensions are six feet long, two feet deep, and three feet high. The sheer size turned a straightforward build into something fairly daunting, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. Thanks for looking

Very nice buffet. It’s extra special since you made it out of their wood.

Thank you, everyone. My fiance’s father had the foresight to have the boards sawn, but he isn’t a woodworker and they weren’t being used. When I got to them, they were grayed from weather and full of splits and worm holes, but I took a single board just to mess around. I couldn’t believe what I found after it was planed. I know most people like quarter-sawn flecks, but I’m drawn to big cathedrals and swirls and variations in grain and color and this had so much of that. So I went back and loaded up on boards and got to work on this! There’s a ton more of it, so I’m looking forward to another big project this spring.

Have your say...
