This table started life as some leftover maple hardwood flooring. I had been wanting to build a dining table for myself for a while, but needed something compact, since I have a fairly small living space. I’m also generally drawn to the clean, straight lines of mid-century modern furniture.

I decided on a round table that would seat 4 if needed, but just two on a regular basis. I did the final assembly in my condo, since my shop is about a 15-minute drive away, and I can’t fit a fully-assembled table into my car.

Very nice Javed. Your glue up on the top looks killer.
