This mission dining room table with cut through tenons and matching chairs was a labor of love- project. I always wanted a large formal table and now I had a dining room that could accommodate a table like this. The frame was made out of rough cut 8/4 quarter sawn red oak planed down to 6 quarter. All the joints are full cut mortise and tenon. The top is made out of glued up 4 inch pieces of 6/4 red oak with bread board tongue and grove ends. All the chairs have free floating slats and high curved backs for a comfort sit.
I hand picked all the fabric and did my own upholstery work on these chairs. That was my first attempt, which turned out to be very challenging considering my fabric had a pattern that had stripes -and I was hard to keep these straight.
My 12 step mission staining process was used in the finish.
