I love my craftmans router crafter. I would like to build my own lathe soon.Then eventually purchase one. This table has a dark stain with white distressed legs and trim. Since I live in Hawaii and its almost impossible to purchase 2” boards unless they are treated. I had to strip 1×12’s and laminate them together.

nice job on the table and chairs. would love to see some of you joinery on both table and chairs. thanks for posting.
can you buy rough (un-planed) lumber and then plane it down to size? (or have a small shop do it if you dont own a planer)

You mentioned your router crafter—I love mine also—and was wondering, did you make the table legs with it? They seem a little big to fit into the router crafter. Any info would be appreciated.

Colors are GREAT. I enjoy seeing people interesting in distressing their work. (Simple build, simple color = functional table) . “I LOVE IT”

Thank you. I don’t have a planer yet. However there is a shop where I could possibly use a planer. Im going to start documenting my joinery process, as Im still learning. Using the Kreg Jig has been my go to but, Ive decided to go outside my comfort boundaries recently and use other joinery.

Thank you Charles and Canadianchips. Yes I love the simplicity of this type of build. I had so much fun with this.

Garry, yes I did use the router crafter with these legs. They were roughly 5”. I had to attach the block after I turned the leg.
