Round Dining Room Table Plans

Round Dining Room Table Plans

We have a small dining room area that is separate from the kitchen and living room. The area is much smaller than our last house so our typical rectangular farm house table was not going to cut it The moment I walked in I knew we needed to build a round table. I still loved the farmhouse design though so I searched high and low for farm house plans. I stumbled across modified plans of Ana White that Jaime did on her blog That’s My Letter.She used the table as a desk of sorts. I extended the table a couple inches more to accommodate 5-7 people and added a quarter round for a dining table feel.My intention was simply a dining room table. Dining tables seem to be my forte’ and in the past, unless I specifically tell Bryce NOT to sell it, I usually get a phone call that we sold our dining table on Craigslist and then I am out a table for a few more weeks until I can find the time to build another one. I decided it was time to start an Etsy business so if you would rather buy a table instead of build it, I will make one specially for you! My Etsy shop is located here! I started out by making all of my cuts for the base. The base is layer upon layer so it is incredibly sturdy. It is a centered cross base with a V-shaped decoration. I went through my cut list and stacked everything that was the same size together. The only way I can get through my projects is if I stay organized. I am constantly sweeping and stacking. Next I started Kreg jigging the pieces I needed to attach together. If you plan on building any kind of furniture, you will need a kreg jig. It has been the best investment in my adult life. The picture below is of the brace that goes directly under the table top. Below are the braces that I cut at a 45* angle for the V-shape and upside down V-Shape. I actually ended up having to take apart the entire table after I finished it and trim these down because they were not cut straight which caused the tabletop to sit crooked. My recommendation here: check to make sure it is square before screwing it in. After I had all the pieces cut for the base, I put it together to get an idea of how big I really wanted the top. I had to screw the angled pieces into the bases. None of these were keg jigged from what I recall. Then I moved on to the table top. The plans from Ana White say “cut to fit” and at first I was kind of torn up about that. It ended up working out great. I measured each board and made 4 pieces of each size to go with each section. I had to kreg in multiple spots in order for it to be sturdy enough. All the little divets in the picture below are spots where I had to kreg screw. The table top started out with a cross beam made from a couple 2 by 4’s. I kregged them together and measured the distance between each slot and cut one by one like I mentioned above. When I was finished, it looked like the picture to the right. You will see an extra board on each side which looks out of place but it was actually necessary. If you look closely, you can see there was an extra inch or so of board needed for the edges of the circle based on the size I wanted. You can see the circle outline that I did a rough sketch of. I was pretty nervous to use the router so I asked Bryce to do it. We used a spare piece of plywood to make as the guide. Since then – we have purchased a used band-saw on Craigslist. They are a bit expensive but SO WORTH the cost if you are an avid builder. Look below to see a video tutorial for how to cut a round table top with a band-saw ​ Once the table top was cut I was able to do my favorite part! Sand!! not. I hate sanding with a burning fiery passion but I have finally begun to understand how important it is. My favorite part is actually staining!You can see below that I am wiping it on with a cloth. I really like this stain when it is a bit lighter so I wipe it on instead of painting it on. The stain I am using is Old American and you can get it at Home Depot or Lowe’s for about $15. I used a quarter of the can but I use this stain on everything so I can never have enough! I love putting it together!! After I put it together I painted a sloppy coat of polyurethane to give it some protection and shine. After the poly dried, I gave it a couple days to cure and then I sanded it with 220 grit sand paper (just the table top) and it was ready to be worn in! SIDE NOTE – we do build several different styles of dining room tables. If you would like a made just for you – clock the envelope and the top right of the page and email us!
