I made this for my son for his 30th birthday. I used beech that my father and I milled, using a chainsaw mill, for the legs. I used hickory that son and I milled from a tree that fell in our front yard for the stretchers between the legs. The top is made from a variety of wood from stuff that I got from my father, my father-in-law, and my own milling. The shelves are oak ply, edged with oak I milled.
Finished with boiled linseed oil, allowed to dry, followed by satin poly. Top soaked in mineral oil for two weeks, flipping every other day, and using a paintbrush to keep soaking the top side, then allowed to drain and dry for a couple weeks.
Cutting board made from scraps of the wood I was using for the unit.
