The end result! Love love love it!
I had this board from a pick. I LOVED it! It was so wide and I kept it aside for something special.
I also found this buried in an old barn. It was opened to be about 2 feet off the ground and had rotten old burlap stretched across it. Not too sure what it was for, but knew it had to be something new!
Everything pressure washed and sanitized and ready to go!
First thing I did was sand down the top to a nice smooth finish!
The I did a few coats of wood conditioner and stain and ohhhh was I in love with what appeared!
LOOOOOOOOOOOOK at the marks that showed up! BAM! Brought to life! Showing off its history on its making! Im such a corny nerd with my obsession with things like this haha!
I then did the fun and verrrrrrrrrrry slow process of adding numerous layers of oil based clear coat. I wanted it to slowly sink into all the grooves and holes and fill up, so the top would be a nice smooth finish. Success! Patience paid off!
My darling enjoying his new table on his 40th. I just had to sneak in a picture of that proud smile!
The end result! Love love love it!

We needed a pub table - I made a pub table. I was saving this one particular board for something, and this project popping up was the perfect fit! A project requiring some patience, that is for sure.
I forgot to include that I added some boards around the edges of the board to add a bit more height to the top as the single board was a bit too thin on it's own for the final look. All in all, she was a hit at our summer pool parties.
