And just in time for Thanksgiving 2013. The lumber for the top and post are reclaimed chestnut from an old cider mill somewhere in Northern Virginia. The feet are oak from Tennessee. I think I used some Sassafras for the spreaders/trestle after I ran out of the chestnut. Finished with liming wax and clear Briwax.

You turned the legs? That’s massive. And I like planing the top in the lounge – that’s my kinda relaxed woodworking! A very nice job.

Awesome table! Great design especially those beefy legs. Beautiful wood and finish, an heirloom piece for sure. Excellent job!
