I love this room of yours! You have wood on the ceiling, that’s just great. Very good job on the table. What size is the top?

This is a very nice piece. I build Stickley nearly exclusively and the only thing I would say is to hold the top stretchers back maybe 1/2 ”. Beautiful tenon and dowel work. As I have said before, I love it when you guys aren’t afraid of big thick lumber. That’s what Craftsman is all about. Great work, great table. Carry on sir. Sorry about the veneer, though. As always, bbqKing.

Thanks for all of the comments.

Rob:The top is about 40 inches wide and 6 feet long.

BBQ: The wood is heavy.

It is hard to tell in the pics but the stretchers are 3/4” in from the edges of the top. Also the veneer is only two sides of each leg. The other two are solid quartersawn stock.

John, Nice! That is quite a magnificent table.

I was just last week showing someone your dishwasher installation pix with the nice wood front you made. BTW, how are you liking that dishwahser?

I don’t know about the rest of your house but I have some great plans for matching bar stools. Big time arts & crafts. Email if you’d like. bbqKing. By the way, I can’t believe that guy thought that was part of your ceiling. That would be one big bolt.
