This is a white oak Parsons style dining table and a matching bench.
The table measures 30” high, 42” wide, 88” long. The top is 1-5/8” thick.
The bench is 18” high, 16” wide, and 74” long, it can seat 3 very large adults. The top is also 1-5/8” thick.
The legs are attached to the rails with mortise and tenon joinery. Because the pieces are so heavy, I only used a few unglued dowels to keep the tops squared to their rails and legs, but I also used pocket screws on the bench seat to prevent the top from un intentionally coming off should someone want to move it.
The corners are all rounded over 3/16”
I used a router jig and sled on rails to level the slabs.
The table is finished with a food grade oil based acrylic and was then coated and buffed with paste wax.
