Here is my second big project. After making several butcher blocks, I thought it would be neat to make a bigger table. Then I stumbled upon the Feb/Mar issue of Woodcraft. I made my table very similar to that one with a few differences.
The table surface itself is 1.5” x 1.5” maple and walnut. It measures about 24” x 30” and is 3” thick. As it turned out, making the surface only took a little more than a weekend. Making the supporting structure took the longest, mainly because of my lack of proper tools. I decided not to use the draw-bore part of the mortise and tenon joints. I figured the mortise and tenons joints would be enough work, and they were.
The table supporting structure is finished with a wiping varnish and the top is finished with Watco Butcher Block Oil. The whole table weighs about 125 lbs.
Thanks for looking.
