Why thank you for your input,while as fascinating as this sounds, am unsure as to its relevance.

I think Raspberry Ketone would make an excellent finish for your farm table (HaHa). Seriously, good find on the wood and the harvest table is looking good. Are you laminating some of the old church lumber to make the top? My wife and I made a similar table (3’ wide x 10’ long) out of cypress with tapered, not turned, legs.
