Rustic dining tables can completely transform a room by adding functionality, character and texture through natural wood.  But you don't have to spend a fortune - most are DIY friendly for around $100 using off the shelf lumber.  And of course, I'm here to help with lots of plans and inspiration.  Here's my list of favorite rustic dining tables that you can build.
