Dining Room Table

After buying a house, my wife was looking at full size dining room tables since we had a real dining room and only had a smaller table. My wife found a table she loved, though it was way too expensive. So I told her I could build one just like it, for a lot cheaper. So I drew it out after some online research, bought the lumber, and went to work. The building went pretty smooth. I did not realize how long it would take to sand the table top. This was also my first time staining anything nearly this size, so I was slightly panicked while staining and was trying to ensure the color was similar (within reason). I also made benches for one side of the table. I stained the entire table and the painted the bottom so I could sand the paint down to the stain to make it look worn. I learned a lot from building the table and now I can't stop building things. I have a whole house to fill with furniture that I can build!!

What a terrific result! You did an awesome job here. Great combo of finish and paint. How cool that you built two benches instead of one long one! That's something unusual in these kinds of sets- it really adds a lot of interest.
