Well this is a late publish but hopefully you can see why. We needed large dining tables for the family Thanksgiving dinner and of course Jamie found a design she liked on Pottery Barn. It was just my job to make it happen. I was excited to give this table a try but knew it would push my skills and tools to the limits. Nevertheless, this beauty was built for only about $125! Can you believe that! While the cost is low you can count on making up for that with time and sweat equity.
I opted for Southern Yellow Pine for the top because, not only is it a less expensive option but it is a strong, durable option that will stand up to the test of time. Plus it’s grown, milled and sold in the US so by buying SYP you know that you are supporting our local economy.

Disclosure: While I did receive compensation from Wood. It’s Real. the design, voice, and opinions are all my own. Basically, I did nothing differently than I would have had I not been paid.
