Charity for Dinner

One of my best customers came and asked for a table and chairs to be donated to a charity auction. I agreed to eat half the price. This is the end result. The table is 51” square and 31” tall. Chairs are 33” tall. All of Beetle Kill Pine. Suggestions from friends decided the tabletop design.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

I absolutely love this set.

Do you have any tips/plans on making those chairs. I love the backs and the way they are joined to the seats.

This is a real nice set, Monte, and I’m sure that they appreciated your generosity.

Excellent build. Very nice gesture on the auction…..on both your parts. The BKP is lovely as usual and the chairs are a unique design. Happy Easter to you!
