So as Ive said in my first post on here. .I get to build reclaimed wood and barnwood furniture for a living and I love what I do. Recently a long time customer mentioned having a Poplar tree fall during a storm…I havnt worked with Poplar very much and inquired as to if she would allow me to cut and mill it. Two days later i was able to mill several board feet and figured I would try my hand at making her a farmhouse table to put in her house as a way of saying “thank you” for all the beautiful boards I know have stored in my shop for future projects…The table base I made from some local 100yr old oak barnwood beams and distressed them with an Heirloom White finish.

Very nice, they’ll love it indeed!

Looks pretty good, I wouldn’t mind own8ng such a nice piece. I especially like the age of what you used, there is a lot of history there.
