Heavy dining table with refined top
My daughter asked if I would build her a dining table for her new house. She gave me a rough sketch of a table she found on the internet. With this to go on, I made the table from white oak and mitered the four table legs to make the 4 1/2″ width and fastened them with the Festool Domino 500. The table was hand scraped to match her wood floors and measures 98 1/2″ long by 43″ wide and the top was fastened with tabletop fasteners slotted into the added rails. The stain was Minwax Provencial and it was finished with 6 hand-rubbed coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal oil-based semi-gloss. grain was filled with AquaCote clear tinted with Transtint Mission Brown.
