I always wanted a farm house table. When I found this slab of reclaime wood at a lumber yard I knew it was the one for the job. All the wood for this project was reclaimed cedar and oak from the Pacific Northwest. I sandwiched the large 19in x 93in slab of Cedar between 2 pieces of Oak and 2 of cedar. The bench was made to match. Everything was sanded and sealed with General Finishes Arm-r-seal in Semi Gloss. This table is beautiful and perfect of our family I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!
