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.
