Finishes

They're actually listed at the bottom of the description.  Or were you looking for more details about their application?

Just built this..

but Im finding that the base almost makes it hard to push the chairs in. I see on the sides you have a pretty good over hang. is it the same over hang all the way around? or are some side longer then the others. Im building this to fit with a nook and chairs.

Yes its the same over hang on

Yes its the same over hang on all sides. Its only a foot and the chairs dont completely tuck under but they tuck in nicely. My base is bigger than Ana's plans. I made the base 25.5" x 25.5" x 28" (with feet) I would have made the over hang larger but when I built it the dining area in the house we were living in at the time wasnt big enough to go any bigger.

I love your table. I have

I love your table. I have been trying to find a table that is regular dining height and is 60" x 60" square with a pedestal base and they are all so expensive. A few questions...is the table fairly sturdy and what is the size of the base and table top. Thanks so much. You did a great job.

Thanks!

Yes it seems to be very sturdy! My 3 & 2 year old daughters are always climbing all over it and its still standing! LOL I did add some L brackets to top of the base to stabilize it even more. The base measures 25.5" x 25.5" x 28" It worked out perfect because I really wanted to avoid having to cut my shelf pieces for the base bc all I had at the time was a circular saw (and I knew I wouldnt be able to cut a straight line lol) so at Lowes they have pre-cut birch (I think) pieces that measure 24"x24"x3/4". So I didnt have to cut that & just added my 1x2s & 1x3s. Now for the top I wouldnt recommed what I used bc crumbs stay in the cracks. If I were to build top again I would just use 1x4s or bigger. I used tounge and groove boards...I probably could have put some woodfiller in the cracks bf I stained it and the crumbs wouldnt be an issue. My top is only 50"x50" but I think the base would still be substantial enough to hold 60"x60" top. And the over hang would probably be a little better too. My overhang is only about a foot i think...so chairs dont go completely under table (didnt really have to option to make it bigger bc of the space at our previous house). Anyways I feel like Im babbling :)Hope this helps! And happy building!
