This was probably my most challenging project to date. I learned so much while building this table. Once I complete my 10 Kevin Rodel Side Chairs, I’ll go back to the shop to make a couple leafs for this table.
Solid cherry and 3/4” birch plywood make up this really fun project. The top has 28 coats on it. Everything from stain, shellac, and rub on poly. The end piece design reflects the chair backs on my future kitchen and dining room chairs.
The four legs were made of laminated 3/4” MDF wrapped with thin strips of solid cherry.
I made this table with the help of plans I purchased from Fine Woodworking. If you decide to build this table, make sure you check all dimensions. I believe I found some mistakes. I’ll post back with those corrections some day in the near future.
