This is a housewarming gift for my brother and sister in law. They purchased an almost 150 year old house so I thought this would fit for them. The wood came from an old house I helped tear down and from an old airport hanger being dismantled close by where I live. The wood was old growth pine at least over one hundred years old.

6 feet long.
30 inches wide
30 inches tall

Water based poly (first time spraying)

Thanks in advance for comments

Thanks a million guys. The cracks are filled with epoxy and black chalk Rick.

Andy, I didn’t glue the whole breadboard. I was careful with that. Thanks again

Very nice table, I find great joy in seeing such projects where wood is given a second life. The wood imperfections cracks and all give it a lot of character and makes it so unique. Great job.
