About This Project

douglas fir

I looked at the Tryde coffee table and some of the brag posts and used that as my inspiration for my dining table. Other than that, it isn't too similar to any specific project plan, but borrowed aspects from several.

I spent about $70 on wood - douglas fir - and completed the entire project for under $150.

The legs are four 2x8 boards. I wanted to do something a bit different, a bit modern, and I think this achieved the goal.

This was my first staining project. Next I am going to build some matching chairs.
