This is a basic copy of another table in my projects that I built about 10 years ago. This is 42”x72” with 3 1/2” legs coming up thru to the top. The top is white oak about 1 1/8” thick. Legs are made from an old barn beam that I re-sawed on my sawmill. It is finished with some Target Finishes water based alkyd. I prefer oil based but this turned out good too.

Beautiful table! It will almost be a shame to have someone eat on it – grin.

Very nice looking. I like the color with the water based finish. I may have to try it.

Great work!
I really like the way the legs are attached and the end grain makes the top.
Thanks and stay safe.
