Yay, finally our new table is done! So proud of my husband, didn’t he do an awesome job! I have been waiting for a table for a long time, one large enough to meet the needs of our family and entertaining. It fills the space beautifully and we will have plenty of room to have another whole family over without extending.
A good friend of ours was taking down a family barn and salvaged the wood for us. I love the character of the different woods, wormholes, knots and cracks. I absolutely love bowties/butterfly joints, so he kind of accentuated the cracks and added three inlays in walnut. Aren’t they precious, am I gushing too much? I still want to find some good chairs, but wanted to see the table first in the space (any good suggestions or store links for chairs?) He is making a split bench as well, so I can put the two together to fill the length of one side or fit on each end.
It was worth the wait, to have such a personal table, we’re DIYers…woohoo, so excited, who wants to come over to party!
