Maybe you haven’t realized it yet, but I’m pretty sure you, just like anyone else spends a large portion of the day in the kitchen and the dining room. And not just for eating, you could be preparing food and supplies, entertaining guests, writing stuff or simply doing an activity that requires a larger surface. Well, that is what the dining table is for, besides eating. But you don’t really have to go to the furniture store and buy an overpriced dining table just because you need one. You can always make one by yourself for a very low price or even for free, depending on the kind of materials that you have in stock.

When I moved into my apartment, I did a half DIY job on my kitchen table, which is also our dining table. I painted the top and attached the legs, but it wasn’t really a building project.

Bring It Together Step 1 Place a couple of sanded scrap 2″x4″s on the floor , and lay your slats on them with the best face down. (The 2″x4″s will protect the finished parts from being scratched by the floor.) Align the ends of the slats and butt them against one another. Step 2 Center the table assembly on the slats and secure the table base to the slats (Photo 3) with 2″ pocket-hole screws through the aprons and stretchers. Step 3 With the top secured, add felt pads to the bottom of each table leg. Good to Know Can’t find non-pressure-treated 4″x4″s in your area? Use 2″x4″s instead. For each leg, cut two boards 31″ long, and laminate them together with glue and clamps. When the glue has cured, rip the 3-1/2″-wide laminated blank to 3″ in width, taking 1/4″ of the width off each edge. Trim the laminated blank to 28-1/2″ long, and a 3″ square leg is born!

Your monster of a table is going to be HEAVY, so I strongly recommend moving it to its final destination in two pieces–lay a blanket down in your dining room, put the top on it upside down, then the frame upside down on top of that. Attach a couple 2×4 supports across the frame for good measure, then begin the frustrating process of centering the frame on the top. Once you have the top centered, attach your brackets–I did two on each end and three on each side.

But obviously, this would take a larger kitchen or dining room to hold it. Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of space. But if you do then go for this table. It’d be hard to outgrow.

Top and Finish Step 1 Prepare the four 2″x10″s for the top slats F. Cut the planks to rough length, trim to width, and then cut to final length. Sand the slats to 220 grit. Step 2 Now it’s time for finishing. Start the process by easing all of the hard edges of the top and table base with 220-grit sandpaper for a smooth feel. Then wipe down the wood with a tack cloth. Step 3 Apply a pre-stain conditioner, following the manufacturer’s instructions, to prevent the stain from turning blotchy in the soft wood; then apply a stain of your choice to the slats using a foam brush. Step 4 When the stain is dry, brush on three coats of a semigloss polyurethane to the table base and slats. Allow each coat to dry; lightly sand between coats with 320-grit sandpaper to remove rough spots.

Set the Seat Step 1 Cut the stretchers C and slats D to length and width. For the stretchers, drill 4 pocket holes equally spaced along the length. Sand the parts with 200-grit sandpaper. Step 2 To attach the stretchers to the end assemblies, cut a scrap to 11-7/8″ long, turn the end on its side, and place the stretcher in position, supporting the opposite end with the scrap (Photo 3). Predrill the hole and secure the stretcher to the leg brace with glue and screws. Add a second end assembly, flip the bench over, and add the second stretcher. Step 3 Apply a finish using the same process you used for the table. Step 4 Place one of the seat slats on the bench so the edge of the slat is aligned with the ¼” gap between the legs (Photo 4) and centered end to end on the bench. Secure the slat to the bench by driving pocket-hole screws from the underside. Place the remaining slat in position and secure. Step 5 Your bench now just needs some felt pads. Attach them to the leg bottoms and set the table for dinner! Good to KnowLet your lumber acclimate to your work space for one week prior to machining. The material will stabilize, and the boards will be less likely to twist when you cut the individual parts from the larger pieces.
