this is one of those projects that has been buried back in the workshop for some time now. we finally had some room out on the shop floor for such a large table so it was time to give it a go.
the result is rather dramatic. after much back and forth we decided that the proportion of the table just wasn't right. we opted to chop off about 6 inches all around giving it a slimmer profile. it will still comfortably accommodate 6 people at just shy of 5 feet long.
we stripped off most of the dark finish and went with a liming wax to lighten it up overall.
liz came up with the fantastic touch of adding the copper flashing around the edge. the perfect finish!
