I have 4 beautiful wooden table legs that I salvaged from my grandfather's house before it was demolished. I really want my DH to build something that would have a valued position in our house so I'm thinking about having him build a harvest table for my breakfast nook. My DH is very handy but he does want me to have all the design details worked out before he begins a project. I'm wondering what material to use for the top. Pine is probably the easiest wood to get but I'm afraid it would be too soft. Any suggestion or recommended design ideas would be greatly appreciated.
