I thought I would update my progress on the new dining room table I am building for my lovely wife
As you can see, I am making headway. I have discovered that somethings take a little extra time
I used a router sled and an inch and a half surfacing bit to make the table perfectly level. I leveled top and bottom, this way. The finishing width is 1 3/4”. I used Ecopoxy for the finish coat on the top. I like this brand because it has less bubbles and is soap and water clean up.
I then started my leg assembly. This will be in my next update. Oh, also I put a coat of satin Urethane on the bottom of the table.
I will post a finished picture when finished.
Enjoy!

Beautiful, Nice job. For future reference, In my experience when leveling or flattening with the router jig you get less lines and tear out if you plane with the grain not against it, Also a surfacing bit with 3 or 4 cutting edges rather than 2 give you a much better cut. Also add wheels to your jig for about $20 here’s mine. https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/381257

MJR,
I understand your statement, but I have found that when you stretch over 5’ with a sled, it can bow, unless of course you build it out of 2×4’s laugh, after my pass back there was little to sand to get to picture two
Thanks for your comments though.

I meant if you put wheels on it like I did you can go with the grain without building a longer jig, Just hold the router in one spot and roll the jig from side to side with the grain.
