DSM Turkey Table

My brother in law and family are moving into a new house and needed all new furniture. I'm just starting out and had wanted to try a project like this but needed someone willing to take whatever the final product was. Luckily, it turned out pretty well and they are thrilled. I used cedar for all boards as I initially thought it might be a patio table but it turns out they want it for the main dining area. I thinned out white and gray paints, alternating coat colors and wiping / sanding in between. The edges were routered with a simple round over bit. I used carriage bolts on the legs so they are removable. The G on the legs is for the family's last name. Custom touches babe. I protected it with five coats of a satin poly. It was a lot of fun to work through it and I'm excited to try another.

  • Nice work. Cedar is fun to work with. It is my favorite wood to work with. I also did a table. If this was a first attempt you will only get better from this point.

  • This is a beautiful build! Your choice of finish really couldn't be better, and your attention to detail really paid off. Can't wait to see what project you tackle next!
