This is a big table made from timber’s from a bourbon distillery in Kentucky. The base is white oak with a angled dovetail trestle cut entirely by hand, the top is red oak 2”+ thick too big for the planer. So had to be planed by hand then took a hand adze to it to match the base ,then took a wire wheel brush to define and distress the top.the smallest board was 11” wide and the largest was 16” wide then put iron oxide and vinegar solution scrubbed it with baking soda to oxidize the wood then waxed it with two different colors of briwax dark brown and Tudor brown in layers to bring out the high lights in the grain then buffed to a silky shine this beast is about 600 lbs and comes completely apart for shipping cheers.
