Harvest Table


Papa is busy in his wood working shop rebuilding and refurbishing this harvest table for a guy at his work. This guy was going to throw it out but his wife said no not to throw it out so he asked Papa if he can bring it back to life.

The table had a lot of dings in it and the hardware  was in rough shape. Papa striped the top and one leaflet , filled the holes and sanded them smooth to perfection, he is working on the other leaflet as well as rebuilding the table with new hardware .  After all this he will stain and or shellac it and it will be as if it was just freshly hand made !

DSC_3135 These are the leaflets. The dark on the left is the old finish before Papa worked on it the one on the right Papa striped and sanded !


It used to have lots of dings and holes in it and was the same colour as the leaflet above on the left !

I cant wait to see this Harvest table completed. It will take Papa about a week or so !

        I will be taking photos of the Harvest table when  it is all completed !

                                     Until next time hope you have a great day !

Oh wished you lived closer! We are going to refinish our kitchen table - in bad shape too. I'm scared to start, but plan on stripping, sanding, etc. too. I'm not going to do the legs, just the top and the 3 extensions. What is he going to use for the finish. That is what I'm concerned about.
Your header picture is beautiful!!!! Odda eats snow too. Miggy is so cute w/Mr Snowman.
Have a great week, jo

I can't wait to see it finished! What a great shop your hubby has...I bet that's his favorite room. Looking forward to seeing the table as it progresses. Have a great evening.

Look at that workshop...... I would be in hog heaven in there. He has tools I could only dream about. WOW!!!

The plainer was one piece I would have died for. It sure helps in taking down a large piece of wood. I am drooling over all those tools and the shop is CLEAN!!! wow! He takes pride in his workspace too so we all know the final piece will be perfect and dust free.
