This is a kitchen table I built for a neighbor. Its made of Douglas Fir with turned, Knotty Pine legs. The construction of the table was mostly made with loose tenons using my Festool Domino DF500. I used a router to make a large mortise and tenon for the breadboards which are just pinned with dowels. This is my first of attempt at a no screw construction. The top is attached using table top fasteners from Rockler.

The table is finished with a Early American stain and a satin clear coat.

Very nice. I just finished a small side table from DF. It’s very hard to make smooth because the grain stands at the slightest moisture. Since I painted it, I filled the knots and such on the top but it’s still not perfectly flat. Did you have any of those kinds of issues with the top?
