I bought a lot of oak from my lokal sawmill for a new dining table. This nice oak slab was a remnant from my order and I bought it as well. Before I'll start with my dining table project, I'll make a new coffee table for the living room. I'll try a new finish for the legs and the table top of the coffee table. If somethings goes south, I use a different finish for the dining table.
Also the leg design of the coffee table is similar to the dining table. This project is the staging area :D
