That's really beautiful! I love the design.

How did you finish the top, and how did you protect the iron?

That came out very nice. I like the look of wood and wrought iron. The finish is impeccable. Nice work.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

Very nice!

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

I used mortise and tenons.. but only added a dab of glue in the middle boards tenon.. all 5 of the ebony plugs go thru the breadboard end and the thru the tenons and out the other side.. the holes in the tenons are elongated to allow for expansion and contraction. worked very well and it's very secure
