I am building a custom distressed dining room table today. I started this project with 2x6 SYP studs. In order to turn framing lumber into a piece of furniture there is a great deal of mill work that needs to be done first. I ripped each 2x6 down to 5" then jointed the edges so they were flat and had square edges. Only then was I able to put the table top together.
This is one should only take another day or so. Should be beautiful!
I think this one turned out beautifully, but the client was not happy. I am pulling this one back and am going to rework the finish for them. The customer is always right! Stay tuned for the updated photo.
After many hours of stripping and sanding, this is the new finished distressed pine dining table. The finish is a new product that I had never used before called "Weathered Wood". It actually reacts with the tannins in the wood to produce a weathered look. The surface is then treated with an oil for protection.
I live in Austin Texas with my gorgeous wife Lisa and incredible son Hudson. I have a master's degree in mechanical engineering, and have spent the last 20 years manufacturing everything from car parts to school furniture. My passion is working alongside God to reveal the beauty that he has created!
