Designed to seat eight and crafted from quartersawn white oak, this table is the second piece of the dining room suite I’m building.

In case it is helpful to any other LJers, I posted step-by-step photos and a link to download the sketch-up drawing here.

Great table, and a perfect compliment to the nice sideboard as well.
Great job.

Thank you, Willie. I plan to build a hutch based off of that sideboard, too, to round it all out.

Very nice, New Dinning table has been on my wife’s wish list for quite some time. I actually just bought some slabs of White Oak the other day. Thanks for sharing.
