This table for my eldest son and his growing family of five. It is similar to the table I made for my youngest son & his bride as a wedding present a year ago.

The mission style table is made from white oak. The base is constructed from 8/4 stock. The table top from 5/4 stock. Below the lowest platform, the legs are joined together using sliding dovetail joints.

The aprons were constructed utilizing bent lamination techniques. There are six 1/8” wood slats in each piece of bent laminate.

I made two table leaves that are 12” wide, extending the 48” round table to 72”.

I finished the table with an oil based natural stain giving it a fumed hue. An oil based wipe on satin polyurethane was used to protect the wood.

I have now started constructing 12 chairs (Kevin Rodel’s plan found in FWW, Arts and Crafts Side Chairs) for the guys & gals.

Great looking table. I like the heavy size of the tables underpinnings.
Have fun with the chairs.
Here is a link to an upholstery technique if you are interested.

Just downright beautiful. Very nice build. That will be around for many lifetimes.
