Put some 100 year old barn oak on an old sewing machine base. I skip planed the boards. For the finish: Shellac, danish oil walnut on the remaining rough cuts. Topped off with 3 coats of gloss poly, then 2 coats of satin wipe on ploy. The boards are held together with cleats that also allow for expansion.

Perfect wood for that stand. My wife has one with a piece of granite on it. I like the wood better. Looks better and,,,, easier to move!

Looks really classy with a touch of rustic all at the same time. I like it!
