As Neil (my faithful employee) was having a root canal the dentist learned that he had his hands in a furniture makers mouth. Well one thing led to another and it was decided that Old growth Heart Pine salvaged from the St. Johns river over twenty years ago was the choice of wood for the table. The leg stock was salvaged from a old train depot most recently the Gainesville DOJO. The client wanted a farmhouse table and since I have formal training in the use of hand tools, no sander touched the finishing of the table. Strictly hand planes and card scrapers, and of course mortise and tenon joinery. Hand rubbed oil finish.
