Latest Thrift Store find

 My last thrifting trip I only found 1 item, this drop leaf table.

 Both sides open to make an oval table.

 I believe it is walnut.  There is some beautiful grain patterns.

 Dovetail joinery. Nice.

 The finish needed work so I sanded it all over.
It was also a bit too tall, so I shortened the legs.

  You can see here that a rotary sander was used and left swirl marks.

After sanding, I used a wood oil.
 Lemon oil is on the left.  Right side is natural.

 Here is our current kitchen table.  

 It always has a table cloth because I made it and it was pretty rough!

 Here is the new table!
I like it!

All ready for some tea.

Thank you! I like it a lot. I think I paid $4 for it at Salvation Army.

@Jan - HA! I think I will not paint it. My husband, the woodworker, loves wood grain I think he has infected me. :)
