Two board caltalpa tabletop with a black cherry base. Table is 7’ long x 36” +/- wide x 29” tall. Two tall back torii chairs and two low back chairs using the same combination of woods. The table will easily accommodate 8 but I only had 4 chairs for the photo.

John, your table’s great. When a person sits at it, do the chair legs run into the feet of the table? I’ve been considering a similar table, but worry about the feet of the table – either protruding too far outward – or not enough and thereby not being stable enough.

How’d you strike the balance?

Great table! How did you attach the table to the legs? Can you show some pictures underneath?

very nice, the natural edge is really cool and I don’t usually care for it much, chairs look really cool too, looks like room for two more any plans for more

The table and chairs are just first class all the way. I rarely see catalpa any more in my area.

These are definitely up to your usual standard of excellence!
