About 2 years ago, my wife and I decided we needed a new dining room set, I decided it would be a great project to keep me busy since I was on a rotating layoff for the winter. We also decided to go with a built in booth. Due to our budget, I kept it as low cost as possible by using birch plywood and pine. To keep things interesting, I inlaid oak around the birch panels. We later moved to a new house, and, sadly, couldn't take the booth without destroying it. But we still have this great table with plenty of room for our whole family! Thanks for looking!
