This is my first attempt at making a dining room table. One of my wife’s cousins asked me if I could make it, so I figured I’d give it a shot. The top and the skirting are made from Maple. I used a General Finishes Medium Brown dye stain with a General Finishes High Performance Satin finish to and seal everything. The legs are painted. For my first table it turned out alright.

One thing I’ll need to work on is ensuring the edges are level when edge gluing boards together. I tried my hardest to get them to all be level, but I had a lack of clamps and lack of funds to purchase more clamps, so it’ll be something I’ll fix in the future. Either way it was a fun and challenging project that’ll help me improve in the future.

This is a very nice table and the wood is beautiful.
