I make barn wood and wine barrel furniture. This table has a 3/4 inch plywood base with another 3/4 inch oak plywood cut to make the 60 inch table top. The top is made from wine barrel inner staves . An inner stave is what is used in barrels to extend their life. Basically turns a neutral barrel into a new oak barrel. So these oak inner staves are about 20 inches long, 2 inches wide and 1/4 inch thick. I figure out my pattern and start cutting the inner staves to fit like a puzzle and glue the pieces on. Then I plane the top, sand a lot and stain with Min Wax clear and polyureathane with minwax satin
