Why didn't you just use a joiner to square the edges and glue the tops together? Any wood worker would have told you this. Why use linseed oil, which will eventually dry out, and put varnish on the tops - hard finished, easy to write on. D

I was wondering how long before they realized, that no matter what kind of shop it is, eventually you have to have a wood shop to go along with it... make a separate room, or an adjoining space...

If I may offer a suggestion...
You guys should consider using a router and a bullnose bit -- probably a 1/2" or 3/4"-- to round over the outer edges of your new work tops.
You'll find that the 90* edge has a tendency to cut into your forearms, whether you are working, or just resting your arms on the tables, while taking a coffee break.
I think you'll find that it makes them far more comfortable to use.

Just as a suggestion but you may want to round off the edges and corners of the table. I know from personal experience that wood can be deceptively sharp. Other than that small thing the table top looks awesome!

Many subscribers are watching to see how a blacksmith can make enough money to justify the labor and tool costs. Is Alec only making money from YouTube? Why not share the projects that make money?

Walkers noise-canceling headphones. They have two mics so that you can hear people talking to you, but they cancel the loud noises. If you get the ones with bluetooth you can listen to music as well while protecting your hearing.

An office renovation... And you go with sitting tables?
Why not, like buy the motorized legs for a height changing table. So you can alternate between standing and sitting for good ergonomic and health?

We'd dry oil cloth, cut them into 1X2 inch bits, and take them camping as fire starters. Half an inch sticking out of some twigs and a slight spark is all it takes.
