Thanks!  I've made a dozen of these over the last few years for friends and paying customers.  One major modification that I've made is to use tongue and groove instead of pocket holes.  I also use a sliding breadboard end to allow for wood movement.  If not, you get cracking and separation during the various seasons.  I can try to take photos to include in the plans during my next build if you're interested.

I love the stain. Could you give details on how you got the looK? Thanks!

Sorry for the delay.  I never got notifications for these comments.   I use minwax gray first.  Then I whitewash using whatever white paint I have laying around mixed with water.  Finally, I dry brush with minwax ebony here and there to add depth.

Could you please tell us how you did your stain?  I have a table ready to stain and would love to achieve this color.
