love the lumber, beautiful piece!

are the ends true breadboards? what fasteners did you use?

really came out great, would love to see a detail shot of the leg-to-top joinery!

keep up the great work, we’re watching!

Yes the ends are true bread board ends. There are five deep mortises along the 42” lenght. There are zero fasteners expept attaching the corner blocking from apron to apron. All joints are mortise & tenon joints. Just attached the leg to apron details.

Absolutly beautiful. I have been wanting to start a large table like this but am too scared.
I am though a little concerned about what is going on in picture #6. Your work bench and tools just look more like a still life for an advertisement. Its all just too pretty. Mine certainly never looks like that. Well done. Nice tools.

This table is beautiful! This is exactly what i want to do for a dining table.

What are the rough dimensions of this table? Is curly maple expensive? How long did this take you to finish? Did you use plans?

Have your say...
