Picture of The Home-made Industrial style Dining table

We just moved to a new house and needed dining table for 4-5 people. We have spent quite some money for all the renovation, so a ready-made dining table is too costly for me. I googled to find if there was anything I can do about it and so I thought of my own industrial style DIY project for the weekend.

Step 1: Materials for the works

Picture of Materials for the works

Material List:

- 18mm or thicker (25mm) plywood or hard wood, or pallet planks if you have

- 25x50mm box steel (or 30x60mm or greater if you want it to look bolder). 1,5mm thick is strong enough.

- Power tools including a welding transformer

- Screws and miscellaneous items (rubber spacers)


What did you do to get the table so shiny? It went from plywood looking to very shiny and reflective. Sanding and varnish of some sort?

The plywood that I purchased has PU finish on one side. You can use spray gun to have the same thing but it will save you much time to buy ready-made plywood. The cost is not much different.

The table is gorgeous! :)
