Years ago, we could drive up north to Wisconsin and buy as many antique farmhouse dining tables as we'd like, not the case anymore. This is a bone stock, all original, farm house dining table, that was constructed by someone who wanted it to live forever. Our newly purchased farm table was over built and I cannot count the number of layers of old fashion shellac he must have used for the finish. Our restoration department gave the farm table a clean bill of health and said it’s good for the next 100-years. What makes this antique farm table even more unusual is the width, for you can actually double up the ends and seat two extra people is a rarity. The table base is solid oak and I would have said the top is pine and it could be, but there is not even one knot in it?
