Made this 7’ round oak table for my son and daughter-in-law. The table is 1 1/2” thick. Have a double pedestal base with 3 support braces. Very heave and solid.

Great looking table…It must have taken a group to move it. I know your son and daughter will cherish it.

Very cool! What method did you use to flatten the top?

That is a beautiful table which should last for generations. The top, joinery, design, and finish are just perfect. Whatever stain you used achieved a great aged look. This should have been a Top3 for certain.

I started the project June 13, 2012 Each board was joined with biscuits high and low… approx. 1/2” from surface. The original order of 1 7/8” was planed to 1 1/2”+1/16” then belt sanded to 1 1/2”. A total of 16 boards were used. Then made a circle jig to cut round… took 7 passes to finish. Finish was Minwax wipe on 1/2 special walnut and 1/2 red oak. Then a 2 coats of ebony. Another note is when I got the boards they were not 4S4.. off by 1/32 so I had to square up 12 of the 16 boards. Not happy about that.. and I did get a refund for the cost of the poor 4S4 work. Used Waterlox Origional.. 3 coats. DJD
