I’ve used a lot of salvaged/saved oak but mine never looked as good as that table.

Man that thing is amazing! I love all the details about it, and the Roman look of it!

We, too, have used a lot of wormy, less-than-perfect oak, but we certainly don’t have anything like your table to show for it. What a masterpiece!

That’s beautiful! I love the massive style. I do have a dumb question though. How do you ensure that the insects are gone/dead/never to return?

bobhall : when i milled the wood i did not see any active larvae so figured it was safe to use as is. if you see any larvae you must treat the wood. just a good soaking in turpentine seems to drive them out if they are active if you dont want to use pesticides.

Have your say...
