Dining Room Table Part 1

In this video I build the leg assembly for a Walnut dining room table for my wife. I first give a brief overview of the table design and then detail the layout of the joinery and shape of the leg assembly. The leg assembly was a lot of fun to build but the most difficult portion of the build is still to come; the bent lamination rails.

I gained inspiration for this dining table from a Thomas Moser design entitled “American Bungalow Dining Table.” While there are aspects of the Moser design that I incorporated in this dining table, my design is unique. Furthermore, I had Thomas Moser review my drawings with direct permission from him to document this build and call it my own.

The dining table features a 42” x 74” table top with a mitered edge. I’m going to try and make the table top as thick as my stock will allow. So anywhere from ¾” to 1”. The apron will extend past the leg assembly and also have mitered corners. I originally wanted 2-sided reverse tapered legs but decided to do 1-sided reverse tapered legs due to stock limitations and to maintain a desirable thickness aspect ratio between the legs and the apron. Lastly, the stretcher assembly will feature bent lamination rails that are joined together by a center stretcher.
