This is my first project (made two nearly identical tables), so I wasn’t quite ready for the mortise and tenon joinery and opted for dowels and the use of Kreg Pocket Hole Jig. Although I made some rookie mistakes, I learned a great deal and really enjoyed the experience. I plan to take on other projects as time allows.
I downloaded the plans from Popular Science.
- Quater Sawn White Oak
- General Finishes Georgian Cherry stain (Urethane Gel Stain)
- General Finishes Clear Satin Urethane Gel Coat
I had some issues holding square when I assembled the legs to the table top, but but I came pretty close. I used 42” Irwin Clamps and spacers to hold square.
