Let me start by saying this is my first wood working project, EVER! Well this project started with my wife and I looking for a dining room table one Saturday at a rather large neighborhood garage sale. We were looking for a larger table because our family had trippled in size since we purchased our last one. We didnt find one, but that started the process of trying to online. We found a table that we liked for a price we didnt! So I came up with the bright idea of building one! Let me tell you, I never took woodshop in highschool or anything!!! I did some research and found some plans online. After the first day I realized the plans we garbage and after buying the wood, and starting to cut it, I knew that I was in deep. I ended up making my own plans, and have a beautiful table that I am very proud of! The top is joined with bisket joints, and the legs and skirting are joined with pocket holes. The finsh was 2 coats of antique oil and 5 coats of polyurethane. The measurments are 80 inches by 42wide and 31 high. The table is constructed of 100% Hickory wood minus the screws! Thanks for looking and all comments good or bad are welcome!
