Cherry Dining Table

This elegant table is sure to be a worthy centerpiece for your family gatherings for generations to come.

The key component of any dining room set, of course, is the table. You want it to look great, be rock-solid, and also be expandable for entertaining guests. This table checks off all three of these boxes, while also providing a construction process that's possible to accomplish over the course of a few weekends. The table base is made from solid cherry parts, which contributes to both the sturdiness and style of the table. And several high quality hardware components like leg braces, leaf locks, and table extenders simplify the construction while also making the table quite strong. The table is topped with an elegant cherry veneer. If you've never used veneer in a project before, don't worry. This top features a paper-backed veneer that's easy to work with. Other plans in this dining room set: the chairs, buffet and hutch.
