Rustic work begins

Posted on by Anne Cox

Rather than try to heat up the big barn this winter, we’ve packed up the gallery, which is much smaller and consequently easier to heat, and turned it into a workshop space for my rustic furniture. So I’ve begun.

First up has been a multi-legged table (seven legs).

It’s going to be a bear to level the table, but it’s almost there.

The legs are from a yellow wood tree (Cladestris) that had to be cut down a few years ago. The top is a slab of hemlock. I think I’ll finish it with a clear water-based polyurethane for the legs to keep them the bright and I’ll put boiled linseed oil on the top to harden it and darken it a bit.
