Bring everyone together around this easy-to-build table. The tall height is comfortable whether you’re sitting or standing.
A “gathering table” is a fairly new concept in home furniture. Standing roughly at countertop height (36"), it’s taller than the typical dining table. This means you can be comfortable either sitting in a taller chair or standing next to the table. It’s a perfect, casual gathering place for friends and family. From a woodworker’s point of view, it’s a quick build, which makes it possible to have the table in the house by next weekend. The knock-down construction eliminates any complicated joinery. The table is mostly constructed with screws and bolts. The simple design also means it’s easy to change the style. If the table shown in the main photo doesn’t fit your home’s décor, we also give you classic and country design options. When the table is done, you can purchase as many chairs as it takes to get everyone gathered around your new table.

It’s like getting two tables in one. This stylish design doesn’t take up much floorspace, but it slides open to provide seating for six.
You can make any of these three beautiful tables using the basic techniques. Just pick the style you like and get started.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
