I stumbled across this site on accident one day in need of a dining room table. After hunting desperately for weeks, my wife and I couldn't find one we liked for under 1200 dollars. So, I had this great idea to build one myself. I figured if it didn't turn out I would just stick it on the deck and use it as a patio table.
I looked at the dozens of table plans on this site and picked things i liked from each and finally came up with the end product you see in the picture.
I used all pine, and found pre-turned legs at a local big box home improvement store. Total wood investment was about 200 dollars, half of that being the turned down legs.
Came out much better than I thought, and the wife was please.
Thanks to the users for all their amazing photos and directions! They came in handy!
My wife is already asking me to build more!
