Nice design and nice execution.

Have you done anything to hold the top flat without breadboard ends?

Thanks. I didn’t do anything too special to keep it flat. I was careful to get the edges as square as possible when I ripped them and used dowels to help with alignment. When I glued it up, I clamped a board across the width to keep it as flat as possible. It has a bit of wave in it, but less than 1/16 inch.

Beautiful! I really like the design – sort of a cross between Frank Lloyd Wright Style and Arts & Crafts Style. Was this your original design or did you work from plans? Nice combination of woods also – those walnut stripes really make it special. Looking forward to some matching chairs. Thanks for posting.

That’s a great looking dining table! I really like the leg design, and love that top!

Thanks Leaf and Dean. I saw a pic of another table I found on the web with a huge slab top (over 110” in length an 2.5” thick) and a larger more intricate base design.
I simplified the base to make it less busy because I was scaling it down in size. The top is my design. Honestly, that is how I get most of my ideas. I see other designs I like and build similar, but change enough to make it my own.
It was supposed to have a bench with it, but I live in Texas and work in my garage. The bench will have to wait until it cools off.

“It was supposed to have a bench with it, but I live in Texas and work in my garage. The bench will have to wait until it cools off.”

Hah! I feel your pain – I live in Ohio and work on my screened in porch – temperatures in the 90s most of last week with humidity over 60% – All my projects have to wait until it cools down and dries out. :)

Great original design – and I like the idea of a bench instead of chairs.
