The sunset was beautiful today in NC. Thought I'd share some pictures of our "Fancy Trestle" table.
This was the second table set that I built, and I built it for our own dining area at the Taylor homestead. My wife, Leanna, requested this style and finish. We call this our "Fancy Trestle" table. She chose an "Early American" stain, from the Minwax finish line. Sealant used was Minwax oil-based Helmsman Spar Urethane.
Occasionally, people ask me how well our tables hold up. We have wild children (sweet, but WILD), and the table has held up very well to their abuse. It's been almost a year since we started using the table. Several milk spills. Weekly art and craft projects, etc... and it's held up great.
Lots of family prayers. That's what I like best about our table. Of course, that can, and should, be done around any table. Have a great day!
