My most recent completed project is this walnut dining table. It’s roughly 8ft long and 3.5ft wide.
The legs are steel, which I painted with a semi-gloss black paint.
The top was finished with two coats of Rubio-monocoat and one of wax.

I decided to use this simple build as an opportunity to develop my hand tool skills.
Jointing the boards proved to be quite the exercise both in patience and physically.

Overall I’m pleased with the end result and love how the walnut looks in the sun.

I see the hand plane there, was wondering if you jointed the boards by hand?
Nice joinery, looks flat, how did you get it flat?
Very nice work.

VERY NICE!!!!!!!!!

Did you make the legs or buy them? If you bought them, would you care to share the source?
