I live in a one-bedroom apartment, which doesn’t work out so well for woodworking. Fortunately, I have some very generous friends who offered me some space in their basement (they live about 6 blocks away) where I could have a shop. As a start to offering them something in return, I built them a dining room table and bench.
They picked out some designs they liked, and I drew up plans.
The table top is solid, laminated from a number of boards all sawn down to 3” widths. The legs are box construction from dimensional lumber, and the stretchers mortised/lapped in. Bench is similarly constructed.
A more detailed writeup (and a few more pics) is posted here.
