White oak dining table
« on: September 09, 2020, 09:11 AM »
My daughter asked if I would build her a dining table for her new house. She gave me a rough sketch of a table she found on the internet. With this to go on, I made the table from white oak and mitered the four table legs to make the 4 1/2″ width and fastened them with the Festool Domino 500. The table was hand scraped to match her wood floors and measures 98 1/2″ long by 43″ wide and the top was fastened with tabletop fasteners slotted into the added rails. The stain was Minwax Provencial and it was finished with 6 hand-rubbed coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal oil-based semi-gloss. grain was filled with AquaCote clear tinted with Transtint Mission Brown.

Beautiful! How did you attach the four mitered decorative pieces on each of the legs? The parts that look like a frame?

I glued the pieces and used pin nails.
