I made this table for my son and his new bride.
The mission style table is made from red oak. The base is constructed from 8/4 stock. The table top from 5/4 stock. Below the lowest platform, the legs are joined together using sliding dovetail joints.
The aprons were constructed utilizing bent lamination techniques. There are six 1/8” wood slats in each piece of bent laminate.
I made two table leaves that are 12” wide, extending the 48” round table to 72”.
I finished the table with an oil based chestnut stain giving it a red hue and used a wipe on satin polyurethane to protect the wood from “spilled milk” :)
