copper edged farm table

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!
