A Sneak Peak :)

Back in April we went to Tulsa and picked up Chris's parents kitchen table. This is the table all the kids and many grand kids grew up with. We wanted a dining room table, but really wanted it to be special, to have a "story" behind it. We asked Ed if he would like to give up his table for Chris to refinish and keep within the family. He and Lois both seemed happy about it, so we drove it home and Chris has been working on it on and off since then.
Here is a "sneak peak", he is getting close to being finished! Ed, we can't wait for you to see it!

Chris has built/refinished many pieces of our furniture and this is definitely one of his best!! We chose golden pecan for the tops and ebony on the bottom. The natural wood grain on the bench and table tops is beautiful!

The bench seats are finished and he is working on the table top now.

Absolutely beautiful! The black bottoms rally make the natural wood tops stand out. Not sure it ever looked that nice!

It looks GREAT! I am curious how much of the original distress is showing.
