Hi Everyone,

Apparently the dining room table came up in the rotation, because a few comments were made yesterday.

Instead of adding a blog regarding it’s construction, I’ll just post this link to my website, which covers the details in depth.

Part one

http://www.prowoodworkingtips.com/Build_A_Dining_Room_Table.html

There are three parts, which are linked at the bottom of the page.

I hope you enjoy it.

Lee

That is a beautiful piece -very interesting leg design.

They actually also use this type of construction for office-cubicle-walls making it sturdy and relatively very light – of course, they don’t use nice woods and veneers for those but just cover them with some cheap fabric.

Thanks for the link, that was some good reading – and the pictures were a nice topping!

Hi Joe;

You’re welcome back in the shop anytime. I enjoyed your visit.

Thank you for the kind words.

And as I mentioned above in one of the responses, if you look in the dictionary under generous men, it more than likely has my brother in law’s picture there.

Hi Bob;

I haven’t heard that expression in a coon’s age. (whatever that is).

My mother used to tell me that when I was a kid.

Thank you for the compliment on the table, but there were times along the way, I wondered if I really knew what I was doing.

That thought was mixed in with “what did I get myself into this time?”

Thanks,

Lee

Obviously a beautiful and stunning table and you are generous in blogging about the process – Thanks Lee, I’m sure your brother in law is pleased! What was the final sealer you put on it – a poly used on car paint? – how did you apply it?
