Jeremy Hill and I teamed up with Gator Finishing (ALI Industries) for a week during the summer to work on a few projects.

This Rustic Table was the first build we tackled and it took us a few days. It was an honor to spend time with the staff of Gator Finishing while being filmed and creating pure heaven in the form of Cedar.

This video is a great guide on how to prep, build, and finish your own dining room table from start to completion. If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on here or instagram. Also link to Gator Finishing by visiting their website and their instagram page linked below.

Some things I learned during the trip and this video was how to age a table with a finish you could brush on from the store. Jeremy shared a process he uses and I will definitely be using it more in the future on my own tables.

We both love using cedar (him more than me) because of the low cost and awesome grain patterns cedar wields.
