This is the 2nd table I made with some 100 year old barn oak on an old sewing machine base.
I made this one for my daughter.
I skip planed the boards. For the finish I used 2 coats of satin wipe on ploy. The boards are held together with cleats that allow for expansion.

Nice re-use of a nice iron base. I have an old Singer sewing machine that has a very similar base that my Aunt left me when she passed.

This has to be an A+ Job.

Great rescue of the base and the wood.

Now very pretty antique DOUBLE—and very usable too.
