Project Information

White oak was used to make this table. Its all hand planed and heavly distressed. The top is 72" in dia. and had two 18" leaves. The base was very massive, the center leg is 12" in dia. and the four outter posts were 6" in dia. The center post had its own base and it stays in the center of the table when the leaves are in place. The two outtrer base's slide in to conceal the center base when the leaves are removed.

The barley twists style posts were done on the Legacy Ornamental Mill. Although they look time consuming they actually don't take long to do. It takes longer to get them all sanded nicely than it does to get them turned. The 12" post is the biggest I can get on the mill, in fact I had to turn it round on the lathe to even get it on the machine.

I'm not sure what the weight of this table, but its a bunch! I used around three hundred board of 8/4 white oak to build this table. The base is 36" in dia. and was 8" tall if I remember correctly.

The finish was dye stains and different colors of glazes along with conversion varnish and hand rubbed dark wax. By our in house finishers, they never stop amazing me!

The table went in a wine cellar here locally.

No mistaking the work of a Legacy Mill. The distressed finish looks like a complicated process.

The Legacy does come in handy at times.

Good job!

I agree. I would hate to try and do this job without the mill. This is a great looking table.

How did you match the themoldings of the inside diameter of the outer legs base, to the outside diameter of the interior post/leg base?

roman, Didn't do anything special, they are not perfect opposites of each other. Just got as close as I could with what I had.
Thanks to all!!!

This might be the coolest table I have ever seen. 300 Board Foot! WOW! Someday, I would like to be able to approach this level of woodworking. To build and posess this in my dining room would be an honor.
