This is the kitchen island/table I made for my brother and his wife It is made from reclaimed oak barn wood from Wabash Lumber Co. I left the saw marks and imperfections in the wood. I got the legs from Osborne Wood, I cut them with a 2-sided taper and painted them black. The top is finished with a mix of Candlelite and Java, General Finishes gel stain. The topcoat is General Finish, Gel Topcoat, satin.

Very attractive. Worthy of being a major focal-point in the kitchen.
Well done!
