Traditional Farmhouse Dining Table by Chris

I recently finished my first large woodworking build, a (more traditional looking) farmhouse dining room table with Alder and Walnut. It’s right at 100″ long and about 40″ wide. I finished it with a coat of BLO, thin barrier coat of Shellac, and then 4 coats of General Finishes Enduro-Var. I’ve got a reddit post here and a larger build gallery here.
