I really want to make one of these...
Unfortunately I don't have any real woodworking experience (other than the boot-remover-thing I made in the eighth grade) and by the look of this lovely creation there is lots and lots of cutting and glueing that would be involved. Especially considering that I would want it to be like 40"x96". That's not overyly hopeful is it? :) The grain look is actually individual pieces of wood glued together...BEAUTIFUL!!
However, my husband does have some experience and my Jake-in-law has a wood shop. I think as long as I don't ask for his help (when I showed him this pic he specifically said, "don't ask for my help"--lol, your hilariously honest!) I might convince him to let us use the wood shop.
(I have been carrying this image around with me on my phone for a while and for the life of me can't remember where I found it. I have been searching online for it but just can't find it. I want to give credit where credit is due, but alas, I just can't find you again beautiful table. So sorry!)
