I am in the process of making a dining table out of White Oak. It was salvaged from a barn. The table top is done except for the finishing. This is my first time working with reclaimed lumber so I have a few questions for anyone that is willing to help.
1. there are a few spots that are soft. It does not hurt the structure, I just don’t want them to get worse or easily chipped. I was thinking of a wood hardener but don’t want to get a discolored spot.
2. Any suggestions on what finish to use. I want a flat finish but we will be using the table every day so I need durability.
Thanks in advance for any help.
