    I'm thinking about using some board below and maybe use some epoxy to fill holes.

    Really great!

    Hi , thank you for your kind words also ... I use a 50/50 mix of boiled linseed oil and satin clear for the first coat , i let that dry for a few days then applied a coat of satin clear as the final coat . I find breaking down the first coat , get better penetration , and the best part , it really bring out the beautful colour the timber has to offer

    Table looks nice. I might have counter sunk the bolts but very nice.
