Just a real simple dining room table. Legs and frame are red oak, and the top is a sheet of quarter sawn white oak ply, edged with solid white oak. Rails are attached with mortise and tenons. I’ve pretty much posted my projects in reverse chronological order which is why they are getting worse not better :) I only have one last thing to post which was my first project (so this was my second).
I originally started this project in our old house which had a smaller dining room, I’d already built the frame but it was only going to seat six so after we moved I had to make the longer rails, popped the top on it et voila. It’s a bit rough and ready but does the trick, and with my 16 month old banging away at it every night it would be a shame if it was heirloom quality :) That’s my excuse anyway.
