Rustic Oak Table for the Banquet
WRITTEN BY the BEARDED BROTHER
Rustic Oak!! That was the first thought that came to mind the moment I saw this table design, the ordinary shaped steel legs and the absolutely beautiful wood which is the rustic oak, with so much character.
In Middle earth at the southern end of the Misty Mountains lives a tree giant or ent, called Treebeard, or Fangorn which is said to be the oldest living thing to still walk under the sun of middle earth. In Appearance Treebeard is said to be similar to a beech or an oak.
Looking at the grains and the rings which over time formed the strong durable heavy wood which is oak, it has a lot of stories locked away just like Treebeard telling the two Hobbits of the Shire Merry Brandybuck and Pippin Took all the stories it has to share.
A Great and wise Friend once told me that the closest you`ll ever get to experiencing God is by simply being in nature, to admire the things he has created to never take it for granted.
Treat Oak with the respect it deserves and you will be rewarded with the grains unlocked and the profound beauty it holds, the irony, The lessons learned from a simple piece of wood and the thoughts uncovered to understand the time it took for it to form. Be patient He works in mysterious ways.
Yes very well let`s take a step out of middle earth and let`s talk about the journey this Rustic oak Dining room Table took me on. Let me just start to say, never assume that working with square tubing and Round Tubing is the same or will act the same, this was my first mistake, thinking that I`ll be able to simply make the same cuts I would on rectangular tubing or even square tubing to create to timeless aesthetics of the X and not even just a simple straight between the two legs X. No because that would be to easy right?
This Round tubing X was designed to firstly make me pull my own beard and make me grow 3 new grey hairs, PS. I actually had to pull 2 of the 3. And secondly having to make sure the angles are cut the right way and that when you cut the notches for the 2 tubes to come together that they will actually fit and not just create an absolute mess. But you know what; it was absolutely worth having to lose 2 grey hairs and a couple beard hairs being burned from sparks.
Moving on from that unfortunate experience, the Table top measuring at 2,4m long x 915mm wide x 35mm thick making the table a comfortable height of 785mm. Laminating the wood, luckily Silverton Wood dealers were kind enough to put all 4 planks through the planer and then to also ensure all the edges are straight and ready for the glue up.
Sanding the table down with 120grid and then finishing it off with 320 grid was an absolute blast, can`t you tell by the obvious excitement in my voice? and oh don`t forget about being covered in dust from head to toe, so badly that my poor mother yelped and almost knocked my brain back into sense when she saw me looking like a ghost covered in sawdust. Honestly I don’t know what is worse…
Now normally I wouldn`t dare change the colour or make a timeless piece like this rustic oak table any darker, but to be honest I quite like the Walnut tint Mixed in with the Ultracare sealer from Timberlife.
But, all Jokes aside I truly enjoyed the whole journey from start to finish, especially the last mile when everything just starts to simply fall into place and the whole project comes to life right before your eyes…
Like always, measure twice, cut once, and wear your proper PPE when working with power Tools especially when Grinding, don`t just squint, wear your safety glasses and please for the love of wood please keep your legs out of the way…
