We were asked to build our first Herringbone table with four matching benches. We were excited to take this one on. The bases are all lap joints and the table base is 4x6's. We used MDF as the base layer for the tops with1x's trimmed to width. The base finishing is Parchment Real Milk Paint with Real Milk Paint Finishing Wax. The top finishing is a custom color match stain to match the color scheme of the room its going into with three layers of poly-acrylic and a layer of finishing wax.
