Fifty years from now if someone finds this table collecting dust in an attic, or sitting at the back of a garage piled with old newspapers and magazines, he'll probably remark, "Boy, they sure don't build tables like this anymore."
This is our contribution to the class of furniture that's built to last. It's solid oak, heavy and sturdy. But I think it has a certain warmth about it too. It's the kind of table you might expect to find in a country kitchen.
The table's top is thick and solid. We chose 5/4 red oak (5/4, pronounced five-quarter, is l'/W' thick actual). And though that much wood sounds expensive, red oak costs less than clear pine (at least around here).
