    These boards came from some dead standing chestnut oaks I took down and had milled a few years ago. I sold most the best boards, so these ones were ripped out of the leftover imperfects. It took a little extra work, but the table top should turn out really nice when finished. 20201113_195058.jpg 20201113_195415.jpg 20201113_195905.jpg

    Very nice. Post some pics when ya get to building it.

    I have a small kitchen table project coming up. I hope to make it out of all salvaged lumber. I might go with sanded barn board, but milled planks would be nice too.

    That will make a great table top.

    12" planer and 8" jointer right now. I have an old iron 12" jointer, but it's out of commission ever since my 3-phase converter died.

    Seems like the last time i had boards with pin holes like that, by the time the poly soaked in, you could barely see them
