This was my first round table commission. My client requested a similar design to a table she saw in a popular furniture magazines catalogue but with a larger table size (60”). We recreated the base and resized the top to her specs, she wanted poplar as she liked the color variations.

The base features two large castle joints at the bottom and top of the center pillar. The diagonal supports are joined to the rest of the structure by 8mm domino tenons.

The top is 1.75” thick and was cut to size using a 1/2” upcut spiral on a router and a 1-1/2” flush trim bit. We used steel c-channel to ensure this thing stays flat, held in by 3/8” threaded inserts and bolts (3 per 48” bar, of which there are two). We used a Minwax oil-base Silvered Gray stain followed up with a vinyl sealer and conversion varnish.

Needless to say I just delivered this table a week ago and I already have 2 more clients lined up for the same thing.

Very nice, and similar construction to my 1500×1500 table for the family
