I have been a woodworker for most of my life and enjoy making different styles of different woods and finishishes.
The first photo is a big leaf maple table 42" X 96" finished with Tung oil. The top is a glue up of 4 quarter lumber into two layers then the layers were glued together over lapping the other top's glue joints.
Second is a occasional table made of red oak, distressed and finished in a dark brown stain.
Third is a 10 foot bench, one of a pair made of Guanacasta wood from Costa Rica.
