This dining table was a late wedding gift for my oldest son and his wife. They bought a house this summer, and finally had a place to put it.

The top is solid ash. The legs and apron are solid Rockport maple. It’s ~ 40” x 60” wide, and extends to ~ 80” x 40” when extended. The design was a request from my DIL, that I copied from a file pic she sent. The ash is stained with Rustoleum Kona oil stain. The clear coat is four coats of Varathane oil base poly. The apron and legs are painted satin white with Krylon Colormaxx spray paint.

The edge profile took 2 different router bits to create. The sliders are steel. The legs are removable, and were repurposed from another table. I didn’t build any chairs for it, but they plan to paint some up to match the legs and apron. One the harder parts of this build was creating the groove in the apron….I posted for advice on that back in September – link here

Awesome table Scott. I remember the start of this, you did very well. I really like the color choices.

Thanks for the pic journey, and sharing the outcome.

Nice job. I envy the guys (and ladies) with the patience, time and room to build furniture.

LOL….the good news is that everything that got painted was re-purposed from another table that already had factory poly on it. No rough sawn wood from my pile was harmed.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Very nice. I like the shaping of the top. And while the apron groove may have given you headaches, it’s details like that that set things off from the ordinary.
