I have built a few tables this week, this one I built for inventory in our store. 20” Tall X 21 1/2” Wide X 5’ Long. I used 1×3 for the legs and I am happy how they turned out, very stout table I tried using a different finish on it(Shellac) and was not pleased with the end result, so I stripped it back down and finished with poly. Much happier with it.

That is absolutely beautiful, Todd.
Love the Cedar.
Great finish, even if it took to goes.
Thanks for showing, and I wish we had timber like that here.

What a beautiful table. The sap wood on the edges really set it off.
