Dining room table project
Here's a table I built for a lady in NYC.
The criteria: it has to look like the table in the catalog, but be made with heavy hardwood (no "cheap pine" or veneers). The wood can't be too pricey, must have some character. Red oak was the choice. The legs need to be solid, the top can't look flimsy. It needs to be easily knocked down, as she moves often. And, it needs to look rustic, yet refined. Then deliver it to Manhattan.
Other than that, I had free reign on the design.
It's heavy, but a fun project :^)
