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.......

Not a very nice post to someone who provides her designs free of charge. You have no idea the reasons behind why she has been unable to post the plans. You post your comment like she owes you something. Nothing stopping you from finding other plans and moving ahead with you project. gheesh.

P.S. to everyone else - sorry to derail these posts by commenting to this. I can't stand rude people.

Just came across this table. Can't wait to make it. I appreciate you providing your plans. No doubt you are busy being a mom. I know how that is! Looking forward to the plans and having a fall/winter project. Thank you!

Seeing that you just posted jst 2 days ago I can sertainly be a little more patient. :-) Not in a rush really. I have, infact, drawn up a design based
on your image and the orig 3 pedestal table. Curious as to how close I'd come. Considered sending them out to others but I really didn't want to rain on any parades. Looking forward to your completion. :-)

This table is lovely! I built a table very similar to this one except it had more of a box type pedestal in the middle. I am curious how the underside of the table top is attached and what it looks like. Will you post a picture of the underside of this table top please?
Thanks!

You can look at the original plans for the Three Pedestal Table on Ana's sight here. That should help you figure out the underside leg mounting.

I love this table. You did a really great job. I actually plan on using different designs from different tables on this site but use your legs. Looks just like the ones from the triple pedestal table but with its own twist. Keep up the good work...

Just wondering if you can give the basic cuts.
I can kind of tell the 2x8s for the top.. What did you use for under the top planks?
Also was it (3) 2x4s butted up together for the base? How did you link them together ? Can you post a closer view of the base? So I can try to figure it out?
Thanks!!!!

Greetings.  Very nice work on this table ... really like the joinery and stanin selection.  

I am currnelty in the degisn process of a table very similiar in size to the one you have posted.  On your design; What is the inner dimensions between the 2 pedestals?  

Also, I noticed that you chose to use just a 2" support under the table top for additinal support as opposed to the 3 layer method.  Are you using a 2X2 or 2x4?  Have you added any additonal support.  I will be using hardwoord and am not certain what type of support will be needed to prevent sagging, espeicaly for the area between pedestals.    Thanks.  Weekend Woodhacks

I'm new to this site and just saw this table. It's exactly what I'm looking for except it's from 2013 and it seems the instructions were never provided. Am I missing something? Is there any way I can get these plans?

I understand that life takes up a LOT of our time and projects like creating plans need to take a back seat. I just have 2 quick questions: Your table is 90" (7 1/2 feet) long; how far apart are the legs and how far are the legs from the end of the table top?

 

Thank you for taking the time to show / tease us with this beautiful table.
