Our first attempt at creating a dinner table were quite, wobbly. Following directions from Ana White we created a better one!

We used Cedar wood and 3″ triple coated decking screws throughout the project.

Start with the leg.

Add some braces between them

Realize your table is 8 feet long and almost 4 feet wide (how is this going to fit in our tiny dining room???)

Up next is getting the top of the table planed and joined together into one massive piece of wood. I have traded some computer repair work in exchange for some expert-level wood working 🙂

Update:
