My sister-in-law needed a dining table and found some plans and asked me to make it. The plans are from shanty-2-chic.com and they are based on a table from Restoration Hardware which costs $2500.
I wasn’t going to post it here, although I did post it on my blog here, but decided to go ahead and do it anyway. I committed a grievous woodworking sin in the way I made the top, which was according to the plans. I see the error of my ways and will probably never do it again, but alas, the deed is done and the table is delivered. I won’t describe it here. You’ll have to watch the video to see.
I made the table for free; it was a gift. I’ve inquired about the top and they said it is fine. I told them I wanted to keep tabs on the top and will do a follow up later.
I recorded the build process and posted it on YouTube if you would like to see how it’s made. It’s a great looking table, but if you make it, you may want to consider another way to construct the top to avoid possible problems later on.
