I built this table using quarter sawn white oak. I finished it by adding a cherry stain and spraying two coats of Shermain Williams water white conversion varnish (catalyzed). It measures 42×60 closed and had 2 12” leaves that store in the table (not shown). I needed to hinge the skirt on the leaves to allow them to fit and still need to add the felt to the cross braces to prevent them from scratching as they will be stored face down.
I’m looking for a good chair design to go with it if anyone has plans or a good suggestion. I don’t want them to be too massive. Our 8-year old must be able to move them!
