Made this table for a mental care institution.
The wood is american oak.
Took me about a month to finish, but i’m pleased with the result.
It’s the biggest and heaviest thing i build so far.
The top is separated in 2 parts, and put together on the spot.
I glued it up using dowels.
The base consists of 3 removable parts, the middlesupport ( on pic 2) and the lower and upper support beam can be bolted loss. 2 reinforcements under the tabletop (pic 5) front and end.
It gives place to about 12 people as it looks now.
The dimensions are in cm ; lenght 295 height 77 width 175
The top thickness is cm 4,2.

Nice looking table. It looks real sturdy and built to last. Did you put a finish on it?

Thanks Steli and Vicki,
Still looking for a finish, maybe some light oil? I tested some oil i got but find it gets to yellow.

Hi Thomas,
I’ve been using water based miniwax poly on my last couple of projects. Dries fast, doesn’t smell so you can do it inside, doesn’t yellow.
