I made this for a family members lakehouse. I overheard them talking about a table they liked and found a picture. The table and chairs at the store would have come in at over $3,000. I made this for around $900. I used prefinished bamboo flooring for the chair & bench seats, table top and table stands. I think the bamboo table bases were the toughest part. Mitering all the corners was a pain to do and my table saw was not the best at the time so I had to do all the miters on the bandsaw. The chairs were definitely a learning experience. I had to redo the first one several times to get the correct angles to make them comfortable. This was the biggest furniture project I had ever done. It also made me realize how many more tools I need. I am so glad I heard about Sketchup this project would have been impossible to do without it. Also, compressed strand bamboo gives you terrible splinters!
