Hubby just finished this table today. It is 7 ft. and has a bench seat with it. The top plank boards are cherry and the bottom is solid oak. He put most of it together with large wood pegs like in the old days and wow it is amazing. It is the best one he has made yet. The top was treated with Tung Oil, it brings out the color of the cherry yet protects it from water rings. The bottom is painted a satin black. Here are some of the steps he took to build it. The last photo shows a couple of sawdust pillows I made to lay on the bench. Gives it a country feeling.

I am a Mammaw of four of the best grandbabies I could ever ask for. AJ age 8, Kylie age 7, Bradley age 6 and Gracie age 5. I have been happily married to my hubby Jim for 6 wonderful years. We are all happy and healthy, and we are all blessed. I was born a hillbilly but raised as a hoosier most of my life. I love bluegrass music and decorating our home with primitives. Come on in and sit a spell and enjoy a tour of our home. I hope you find something that will inspire the primitive decorator in you.
