After a long evening of wire wheeling, welding, and clear coating, the table is finally done. It only took over a year, hogged up most of my kitchen, and cost more than my truck, but it's finally done.
It's been a while since I've had some time to work on my kitchen table project that is pushing going on a year now. The other day I finally when to the local woodcrafter's and picked up some polymerized linseed oil to finish the wood trim part of the table. It was pretty hard to photograph in my kitchen, but you can see that grain of the black walnut looks really nice. That gave me a good pump up to get working on this again and get it finished here in the next few weeks.
I brought the wood bits of my grate table home from the shop today. A few coats of finish and that black walnut should really look nice.
I decided that after two and a half years in my apartment, I needed a kitchen table. Being the person that I am, I wouldn't ever be satisfied with some POS fiber board shitbox, so I decided to build my own.
I've always been interested in more industrial looking pieces of furniture and got the idea to take a big cast iron gate and make it the center piece of the table.
I was able to find someone somewhat locally to source the black walnut for the trim from, now I just have to figure out what I'm doing with the legs.
