I am relatively new to wood working and am looking for some advice / opinion on wood selection for building a farmhouse trestle table for our kitchen. It will be a gray wash finish. I have a 6” jointer and and a thickness planer (in addition to the “normal” tools ). As this will be my first attempt, I have high hopes, but tempered with realistic expectations. With this in mind , I am trying to go with a wood that would be appropriate for gray wash and reasonably economical. Have considered rough pine boards, poplar, oak or even milling my own boards from big box 2x(8/10/12) lumber. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
