This dining room table is made from solid cherry hardwood. This table can seat six people (42” wide and 72” long) and can accommodate 10 people (60” wide and 72” long) with the two side extensions.

The use of hand cut veneers was used for the top and pedestals to maximize the use of a 2” thick 9” wide board that was highly figured. The 3/32” thick veneers are laminated onto solid cherry hardwood.

This project has seven bent laminations that require two custom bending forms. This project also requires extensive use of jigs.

The curved top support, feet, stretcher are made with 18 layers of 3/16” thick, 1 ¾” tall and 46” long strips of cherry laminated together and bent along a form.

The two vertical pedestals are 1 ½” thick, 18” wide and 27” tall. They were constructed using two pieces of 3/8”and 3 three pieces of 1/8” thick bending plywood and formed using a vacuum press. They were then edge banded with ¾” x 1 ½” cherry and faced with 3/32” thick hand cut cherry veneers.
