I've always wanted a big and robust dining table, but they cost a fortune. So why not build my own?
It really isn't that difficult and took me about three days to complete.
This does not give you a very thorough description of how to make the table, but it will give you a rough idea of what it can look like.
I wanted to make a table made completley out of wood, so no nails or screws are used.
It's important to get thick enough and straight planks. The better material, the better your table will be.
I like to do things from scratch so I went out and got some logs in our forest and took them to the local sawmill.
Step 1: Preparing the planks
Now it's time for the tedious but rather meditative planing, grinding and milling.
The easiest option is to buy prepared planks but if you have the tools it doesn't take that long.
