Dining table ready for Thanksgiving!

Submitted by jimboski93 on Mon, 11/21/2011 - 08:01

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.

I really like the way you did the legs. I may use that idea myself. You did a great job!
