This Conference desk is made out of 2" x 14" rough planks. It has an oil finish to it with all the original patina to it, don't worry you wont get any splinters because his baby is as smooth as a baby's bottom. This table sits 12 lucky people at a single sit down. This table 7th wonder measures 4' wide and 14' long. Tell me that this is not impressive. Don't like the color of the finish or want a different size, just speak let me know and i will make your dream come true.
