Walnut Dining Table

This is a walnut desk with 2 leaves in the middle. Overall total length is 9 feet. The legs are three similar forms glued together to create a tri-legged base. They are topped with with a piece of plywood that allows the rounded top sections to be screwed down. I used table extensions from rockler. They are all metal, easy to install, and don’t sag. The apron is laminated wood. ALthough this worked out, I will try a brick-layout next time with a veneer face. I think it will be easier and stronger.

The inlay in the center is similar to the chess table I made. This table is for the same people. They liked the chess table design and asked me to make the dining table similar. It’s 1/8 inch routed grooves with maple inserted. The key is inserting them in the right order so they look like they are ribbons and overlap the right way. I used a router rail to get it all aligned. It was actually very easy to cut the grooves.

A table to be proud of. I also love Walnut. There is something about the richness of the color when it is finished that keeps me coming back.

The inlay is a classy and artistic touch. Good work.
