Shortly after completing the hutch, we decided to do something about our dining table.
The original table had a round top, which we got rid of, and a real nice oak base, which we decided to keep. That meant all we had to do was clean up the base and make an oak top to put on it.
Here’s what we came up with:
(The third vertical member I mentioned in the hutch post can be seen here as well.)
Since this thing is solid oak, it’s a bit on the heavy side so we brought it in in two pieces as shown below:
In case you’re wondering, the half-round objects leaning against the window in the background are the pieces of the old top, which I figured I’d hang on to in case I need material for shop jigs or something.
