This was the last project I worked on with my dad before getting married and moving away (7 yrs ago). My wife and I were going to need a dining table and I designed this for our needs. Since building it 7yrs ago it has acquired a more than a few scratches from my son but a little coat of wax every year keeps it looking great.

It is Red Oak and trimmed with Walnut. It has a golden oak stain and polyurethane finish.

Thanks for Looking.

Any issues with wood expansion? That is a large long grain to end grain joint.

Beautiful table.

Looks sturdy and really pretty. Like the design specially the feet and the finish too.

No I havent had any major expansion issues, but I have had one minor where the walnut which was angle cut on the corner has come apart. Not sure if it was not glued well or expansion. I used a little minwax stained filler and you can hardly see it.

Thanks for the nice comments.
