This project took place a few years ago... in the early stages of my DIYing :) It was my first attempt at building a Dining table from scratch. It was a very fulfilling project and I learned a great deal from it. The idea behind it was that

    I live in the Salem, OR area and wondered how you got the wood and do you know from what part of Oregon

    Gorgeous. Great job. Thank you for sharing I myself would have painted the legs white or dark blue. Hiw ever stain is very easy to clean. What do you use one your table to clean it? Murphys soap oil, or just soap and water? Do you use old English, pledge for weekly clean? Just curious on what you use?

    can I paint over glossy finish dining room furniture or do I sand it off first?

    Looks really pretty and it is refreshing to see a project that does NOT involve chalk paint or distress! Thank you!
