Project Information

I am very exicted to post this project. because I did not make it. My oldest son Elvis (yes that is his name) has been learning the craft from me, This is his first peice from rough lumber to finish. I just looked over his should and guided when needed. The base is a 1905 or so New Home cast iron and the top is 25"x25" 1860 relaimed yellow southern pine from a barn in Berkeley Massachusette. The base is finished with 3 coats of satin spray lacquer, top is finished with 2 coats of Danish oil, then 4 coats high gloss poly. Very proud of his work and pasion for the craft. Thanks for looking

A beautiful piece. Bringing some old board back to life while teaching a young son how it's done… Priceless! You must be very proud of Elvis. I love the look of the old wood; it goes well with the cast iron. Nice work Elvis! Keep up the good work and congratulations on the success of your first piece.

Sixty-three years ago my grandfather stood a 7 year old up to a turning lathe. He ignited a lifelong passion that has given me thousands of hours of enjoyment and satisfaction. Your table is lovely. Stay with the craft, Elvis!!!

Your boy done good Dave! I guess the apple DOESN'T fall far from the tree. This is a beautiful piece, demonstrates wonderful recycling of lumber and who knows what woodworking path Elvis has begun.
