We needed a table/countertop for an area underneath some cabinets in our kitchen. I wanted a place for our toaster oven and coffee maker. I was lucky enough to score some free reclaimed pine from a friend who had leftovers from redoing their floors. It was old pine that was previously used for the floors of a bourbon distillery. Being a bourbon fan I was excited to use this as a project in our house.
The table is 37” tall, 20” wide, and 57” long.
For the top I used 3 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. For the base I applied 3 coats of General Finishes Sno White Milk Paint and a top coat of Arm-R-Seal.
This was the first time I turned more the one piece for a project on the lathe. Although the legs did not come out identical, it was fun, and with more practice I think it will become easier. On a side note, having a 3”X3” post spinning on the lathe at 600 RPM can be a scary experience.
