I am a beginning woodworker. I want to make a table for my family room. The table should be tall – cocktail table height. I am told these are also referred to as tallboy tables. It should be big enough for two people. I have two barstools already to go with it.
I prefer a round table but I don’t have the skill to make something that is round and big enough. So I was thinking of doing something similar to a large cutting board, where I glue up strips of wood and attempt some breadboards at the end.
Another option…. I like the idea of doing something like what is pictured on http://www.hgtv.com/design/make-and-celebrate/handmade/how-to-make-a-wood-cutting-board but I suspect that glueing on edge like this won’t be strong enough for a table top?
In terms of tools, the only power tool I own is a 14” bandsaw. Everything else I’ll do by hand – I have planes, chisels, etc.
Anyone have suggestions? Pictures to share or plans? Even better is if there is a video series for something as I need all the help I can get!
Any and all help is most appreciated. Thanks!
