A friends wife contacted me one afternoon back in September, inquiring as to my availability to build a new dining table for them. After some discussion and lengthy decision making process on the design, style, and type of wood I began construction. This is the dry fit assembly of the table. I used mortise and tenon joints on the lower part for this table. Originally we discussed simpler and cheaper pocket hole joinery but I felt that a table shouldn’t need to be tightened up with time and get all wiggly like my current store bought kitchen table has a tendency to do periodically. More on this project as it progresses.
