We wanted a kitchen table that was simple, neutral and could take a beating from us and the kids, but still develop some character over the years. It's 6 feet long x 3 feet wide, hard maple wood top with iron hairpin legs. I built the top and we purchased 4 hairpin legs. We left knots throughout the wood because we love the character it gives.
- 32 feet of 7-1/4 inch wide x 2 inch thick hard maple wood boards (maple is a favorite of mine because it’s dense, can take a beating, fairly simple to shape and leaves great character in the wood)
- Four 28 inch Hairpin legs (Satin Nickel)
- Bistro Chairs (Copper)
- 2 inch Screws (48 qty.)
- Wood Glue
- Wood Filer (optional to patch gaps)
- Stain (Special Walnut 224 - Minwax)
- Polyurethane (Clear Satin - Minwax)
