This table for my eldest son and his growing family of five. It is similar to the table I made for my youngest son & his bride as a wedding present a year ago.
The mission style table is made from white 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 natural stain giving it a fumed hue. An oil based wipe on satin polyurethane was used to protect the wood.
I have now started constructing 12 chairs (Kevin Rodel’s plan found in FWW, Arts and Crafts Side Chairs) for the guys & gals.
