Made this for a friend. Followed the plans from the Clara table, chairs were made from the 4 dollar stackable chair plan.
Finish was Watco Danish Dark Walnut oil, which i just discovered and love. Goes on even and isn't blotchy on pine. For the table top i added a couple coats of polyurethane.
The table was easy to make, but the chairs took quite a bit of time with the amount of slats. Also there are about 30 screw holes per chair to drill, countersink and fill with putty. I am making another set for someone else, and will probably go with a single, wide slat for the back and seat. Also I would suggest adding braces to the legs, they seem a little flimsy
