I’d like to share another one of my tables with you Jocks.

My wife and I found a table, almost junk, behind an antique store up in North Carolina and brought it home and restored the table. It took her and our youngest daughter a lot of hours to finish taking it apart, cleaning and joining the table back together and finishing it. It’s now our youngest daughter’s desk, hands off do not touch or you’ll be going to the emergency room.

What caught my eye were the legs as I had never seen one like it before and trust me, I’ve seen a lot of table legs over the last many years.

I turned the legs out of some Cedar post I had and made the top out of Ambrosia Maple and made the frame out of popular.

When I got through with the table I sat it outside to make some photos of it. A truck went by, turned around and pulled in the drive. A lady got out her truck and looked at it and said how much so I threw a price on her.
Counted it out, put the table in her truck and the photo shows it in her home.

Hope you like it.

Beautiful recreation of an American period tavern table, great work. Hope your earned a pretty profit of this sale.
