no previous part Part 1 of Dining Table Build series Part 2: End leg assembly.....Splats »

Well after a month and a bit, a small bathroom reno, and a few side projects I’m finally moving on to my table build. After considerable browsing on numerous web sites, on line catalogs and posts by other LJ’S, I have decided to try my hand at a Mission (Arts & Crafts) style from Stickley. Fortunately there are several distributors fairly close to where I live so I produced a cad drawing, went to the stores (several times) and was able to apply some numbers to my drawing. From there it was a process of drawing out the parts with dimensions. After all that I redid my drawing on Sketch-up just to make sure every thing would work out, so I’m hoping there won’t be too many surprises. I have a bit of the 6/4 Cherry left over from the chair build and will use that on the upper and lower end rails. I plane to make the top finished at 1 1/8” thick, so I’m still debating 5/4 or 6/4 to start with.

Mark, I would use 6/4 stock to end with up with 9/8” finished. That is a great looking table and should be a lot of fun.
