Topic tags/keywords: work table pine oak traditional

Started my new work table last week. I glued up some 5’ 2×4’s to make a 30” wide table. When that was good and ready, I was ready to start.
I had a bunch of red oak barn wood, so I planed some of it down to 7/8”. It started 1 1/4” thick. It did work on my planer blades. I glued some up and had a 33 1/2” x 61” panel. Yesterday I glued and clamped the oak top to my base. Today I spent putting together the stand base and legs.
I had some 3 1/2” x 8” treated beams, which I used for all the bottom structure. This afternoon after getting this monster turned over, I started sanding down the top. This will take me several days. I’ll add a picture when completed.
Vise should be here the end of the week.
Any ideas about the finish would be appreciated
I applied some lemon oil just to give the wood some moisture.

I like Danish oil for a finish. Protects the wood and I have not found it to be too slick.

Oh ya, pics or it hasn’t happened. ;-)

I had thought about linseed oil. Can’t put pictures up with the iPad. Have to use my PC. I’ll look at Danish Oil.

Sounds like a blog series is underway.
