We just moved into a new home and my wife asked that I build a Parsons Table to fit the breakfast dining area.

Totally out of Red Oak. It took 7 weeks to construct as I was very busy moving our home and our disabled daughter’ s home. All joints are 3/8” dowel and glued with Titebond extended adhesive.

The table top is sanded to .820” thick, treated to three coats of Watco Golden Oak, and four coat of Conversion Varnish. The bottom was painted [HPLV] with total of three coats of high quality paint. The painting was done by a local firm that specializes in this type of work.

Finish size is 39” [W] X 62” [L] X 30.25” [T]
