This is a walnut table that I made for my sister’s new house. I used biscuits for the main panel and loose tenons/dowels on the bread boards. It is finished with five coats of arm r seal, lightly sanded in between each coat. The base is painted with three coats of paint, lightly sanded in between each coat, then finished with two coats of arm r seal.

The top is absolutely stunning, the grain pattern, little piece of sap wood, bread boards with dowels – nice nice nice

Great table. I’ve recently made 1 myself. Where did you get the legs? I can’t seem to find a cheap source for tbale legs.

Looks great! I have never seen dowels used on a breadboard end like that, I really like the look of them. How thick is the walnut?

I got the legs unfinished off of amazon. Definitely not cheap, 140 for 4, but not terrible either. The top started 8/4 but by the time I got it planed and sanded, it was 1.5 inches

Very beautiful- I am interested in making a similar table, but because I am a novice woodworker, I would benefit from some detailed instructions- any ideas??
