Terri & Jeff’s Dining Room Table


This project is a custom dining room pedestal table for Terri and Jeff. One end of this bar top height table will attach to an existing kitchen island, while the main weight of the table will be supported by an eight inch, eight-sided center column with three legs and ball feet. Constructed from white ash, this table will be stained and varnished to complement the existing woodwork in the room.

While most of this project is straightforward, two components are providing interesting challenges in the workshop. The three ball feet have internal leveling feet incorporated. The real challenge is the curved section of table apron, which will be made of a bent lamination glue up. To accomplish this, a form made of four layers of 3/4 MDF is in the works … it will accommodate 19 clamps!
