they are selling for $550 a set, and are handcrafted in saskatoon. i am sure thats not $550 worth of wood, so ......  how hard could it possibly be?? my mom built a big table just like this when we were kids, i'm sure i could do it.

i mean that is apretty basic style, i think i would want mine finished a bit better, also, something i know how to do. 

click the ad link for better pics and more info, if you want

anyways love it or hate it? for a long narrow dining room with french doors to the patio at the end. put a long runner on it, some chunky funky candlestick holders,,,,,i think  i would put more laquer on it than this guy has, and in a bit darker on the stain.

It takes a lot of work to make the wood. Like cuttingn down the tree. Plaining it shaping sanding staining and pu4ting it together.

see how in the pic there are a bunch of thinner boards in the table? i would just go out and get two 3ft x 5ft planks, which are about 2in thick....ugh i night have to show you what i mean, but it's really very easy. and i always get the guys at homedepot to cut anything i need cut, lol
