I spent as much time running the Oak through the planer as I did on making the table itself. This six foot long table took a full day to complete starting from rough sawn lumber. It is all plane sawn except for the live edge pieces and has a Watco Oil finish right now. I am almost out of dry Black Oak but have some spectacular quarter sawn drying for next summer’s projects. I will make a pair of live edge benches to match (the wood for them was run through the planer at the same time as the table pieces).

I think I have a couple of pieces of black oak. I used it for side in my horse stalls. and then took them off after the horses went.

And the wood went into my lumber stash. Nice looking tables.
