This year was our first Thanksgiving in California and it was a blistering 80 degrees. We still had a great time. We cooked up loads of delicious food, and made a table to share our feast over! The wood is from a local shop, Made Lumber Supply, and was trucked from an Amish Farmer in Michigan. The slab is Black Walnut. We had it professionally planed and hewn, and then did the finish sanding and varnish with Danish Oil ourselves. Table legs were purchased from Etsy. The end product is lovely and a great place to have dinner in our tiny apartment!
