Our Family Dining Room Table

About 5 years ago, Dan decided that he wanted to someday build a dining room table made out of a Walnut tree that was on the family farm. He and his dad hauled the tree to a logger and then had the tree cut into various sizes of boards and then had it kiln dried. His parents delivered all thecut boards to this house when we moved in and they have been stacked in a pile in our garage since then...we have lived in this house for 4 and a half years. Since Dan has been so diligent on wanting to get this house done, he has not had time to even work on the table at all. Well this past weekend he was finally able to get the table started and I could just see in his eyes how happy he was.

The table is going to be a 5 foot square table made to look kinda rustic with a pedastel base. Below are some pictures of what it looks like right now.
