General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

This table is beautiful! It said that the cut measurements and directions would be posted later and I was wondering when that might be. I'd love to make this table for our dining room! Thanks!

Question! Would I be able to achieve similar results without planing any boards? Simply by using stock lumber I mean?

I am almost done with the plans this is my first attempt with sketchup so it has been a process to say the least.

On the table top, I used stock lumber, and I did not have a planer. I used my table saw to cut an 1/8 of each side of boards to removed the rounded edges. Then glue and kreg jig them together. cleaned off any glue that squeezed out. Then I took my belt sander and sanded till all creases were smooth as a baby bottom. Sometimes I get a crack or a gap and I used stainable ProBond wood filler and sand again. When stained it looks awesome.

I have rounded up all the tools I should need...now I just need the full plan to get started. We only have a couple sunny months here in Oregon for building outdoors, so I'm anticipating the detailed plans for this project. Any chance they will be available soon?

Thanks ~

It's been over three months since this design was originally posted and roughly seven weeks since you posted that the plans were "almost done". Can we expect that plans will actually be provided? I love this table and really wanted to make it, but summer has nearly come and gone and I could have already built a table from a different design.......
