    Dining Room Table

    Made from Walnut. 72” x 42” with two 20” leafs so it is big when fully extended.

    Shop made veneer on top of maple plywood, backing walnut veneer on the bottom. Solid wood edge all around with mitered corners. Solid wood aprons and built up legs.
    Transtint mission brown dye, shellac seal coat, many, many coats of General Finishes Satin Top Coat. Lots of fun for sure.
    Now onto the buffet.
    Thanks for looking.

    Great job Robert, love the style of it. Did you use pre-made extensions or make your own?

    Darren, extensions were pre-made from Osborne. Work really well.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    Beautiful table.

    And great inspiration for a family member struggling with his dining room table.

    I agree with Carol...

    Beautiful table, and great workmenship, the curved legs really make the design. That's a big table! I hope this question is not out of line, but how long did it take to build?
