Here’s something totally different from the projects I normally build. A friend approached me and asked if I would be willing to build them a dining table. He had a Crate and Barrel table in mind that his girlfriend liked but they wanted to make several modifications.
This was all built with 8/4 White Oak, planed down to just under 1.75”. All joinery was done with my Festool Domino and Titebond III. The tabletop is affixed to the base using metal tabletop fasteners from WoodCraft.
The table is 79” long, 38” wide and stands 30” tall.
I only did the woodwork here and then passed it along to my friend for finishing. He originally intended to use a light silver dye finish but fell in love with the natural wood grain. He sanded from the 80 grit where I left it, up to 320 and then finished it with General Finishes EnduroVar. I’m not sure how well it will hold up but it retained the natural color like he wanted.
