Cherry wood table (lots of pics)

Here's some pics of the table my dad and I have been building all week while I'm visiting for thanksgiving. Not totally finished yet, but I'll be putting the polyurethane on tomorrow. It's been a great project for us to spend some time together and just give him something to do since he's retired now.

We're by no means master craftsmen, but I'm pleased with the results. I'll try to get a final pic tomorrow.

** Btw, We took this from whole tree to final product - we cut this lumber about 15 years ago with our wood mizer sawmill we used to own. Kinda neat seeing it go from tree to final form.

  • Gorgeous! Thanks for posting that. Great thing about cherry is that it just keeps getting better with age.
  • Beautiful.
  • Beautiful table. Cherry is one of my favorite woods to work with. If I may, you may not want to use poly for an outdoor table. The sun will crack it and cause it to delaminate. You'd be better off using a spar varnish.

  • Beautiful! Very cool that you are getting to spend some QT with your Dad.

    Yes, spar vanish is what I bought...

    The great thing about this table is, minus some new tools (toys!), I think I have a total of about $20 in it. Really helps when you have some free wood!

    And being made of cherry, if you run out of chunks you can always chop off a leg. Just kidding - beautiful table and great multi generational project. Well done.
