Rustic Dining Room Table

 My dad just finished tackling his first REALLY BIG project.
A beautiful dining room table for my cousin Holly.
(FYI - She designs gorgeous jewelry pieces. Check out her Facebook page.)

Holly and her family just moved into a new house. 
They wanted a rustic dining room table that would seat six people.
So, they asked my dad to build them one. 

This is a photo of the look they were going for:

 I think my dad did a really great job!
It took him about a month to build. 

When Holly saw the finished product, her exact words were, 
"Oh. My. Goodness. This looks beyond amazing. Exactly what we were looking for - only better!"

He used two different stains to get the color they were looking for. 

The measurements ended up being 78 inches long, 44 inches wide and 31 inches tall. 

It's a beautiful piece that Holly's family can enjoy for many years to come!
