Gathering Table

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.
