Made these 2 item out of oak and oak plywood. Took me over 9 months to make these because of my back problems but am very proud of them. The table top is 1-3/4” thick and had to have someone help me move it all the time that I was working on it. Take care and be safe.

Fantastic looking work. I’d say it was worth the nine months it took to get them done.

Thanks at least I feel that I am of some use. LOL The biggest thing is that it gets me to not think about the pain that I am in all the time.

Great job on the hutch and dining room table. Looks like a great pair of furniture items.

These are wonderful looking projects. They show that you can’t rush good craftsmanship.

How did you finish the pieces?

I like the multi-tiered look on the hutch top

I spray finished the table and hutch with General poly. I have a HVLP spray system. Down here in FL the spray almost dries as soon as it hit the wood. I put on light coats and have 10 coats on these items. Put them all on in about 4 hours and they came out looking very nice.

A nine month labor of love resulted in the birth of those beautiful pieces. The chairs are a real eye catcher as is the stair-stepped hutch shelving. You have every right to feel the proud ‘wood’ daddy.
