Oxidized Farmhouse Table

Submitted by ksmith311 on Tue, 11/05/2013 - 11:48

This is the second Farmhouse Table we've built and this one is sooooo much nicer than our first one. The build went smoother the table top turned out more straight with less high spots. The oxidized finish is super gray due to the cold weather here.

So beautiful!

Nice Job! Looks great! Was there something that you did that helped prevent high spots in the table top? I will be building a table in the near future and was curious if there is a trick to it. Thanks!

Is the table top also douglas fir? The finish of the top came out great. Is it the same finish as the base? I love the top and hope I can do the same!

Thank you! The table top is douglas fir as well. I just bought the cheap framing lumber from the blue store which I believe is doug. fir. The finish is the same except that I waxed the top 2x with dark wax and 2x with clear wax and then buffed it. I only waxed the legs once with brown wax so it does look a little bit lighter.
