My sister is getting married next October so I built a dining table for her wedding/Christmas/birthday present. Utilized Scott Morrison’s leg template to built the base. The base is a 4” center post with 2.5” thick solid walnut legs. I laminated pieces together to get the center post and leg thickness. I wanted to build the base beefy so that it could handle any future abuse from future children. The top is 1” thick and 4’ across. I kept any knots that appeared in the base to give it a more rustic feel. Table is roughly 30” high.

The template for the leg curve I got from Scott Morrison. Everything else I designed on my own.

Very nice work, as jap said it needs the lowback dinning chairs and we know your very capable of making them :) Maybe one a year for the next 4 to 6 years depending on how large of a family they plan, with seven or eight kids you could be building chairs for a long time. Now that’s a long term commitment!
