got'er done. Here's a picture of the top with the first coat of finish on. Three or four more and she'll be out the door!
Here's the back story on this table. A few years ago I was given the opportunity to get a couple of logs from a sugar maple. The tree was in front of Colonial Hall which is the oldest house in the town where I live. Here's a link with a little story. http://www.roanecountyinfo.org/histo...onial_hall.htm Best I could figure from the growth rings the tree sprouted around 1860. When I get it finished I plan on giving it to the owners for letting me have the logs.
This is a picture of the top. It's 14" wide x 45" long x 29" tall

That's going to be a spectacular piece, John! Looks great already.
In your original photo of the top, it looks like an owl face peeking out of it!

Live every day like it's your last, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
That looks great John! Also a great gift to the owners of the place the wood came from!
