My wife has been threatening to buy a new dining room table for about a decade now and I keep saying I’m going to make one. The time has come. I need to make a dining room table. The table is made from the glue lam beams that used to be over the pool structure where the shop is now. The four legs of the table lean outward and are held in place with a central stretcher and the strength of the table top. To hide the knots and imperfections in the table top, I had our kids do drawings and I use those drawings to cut out shapes to make inlays for the tabletop. I also carved the underside of the table top to give the table a thinner edge and still have some structure between the legs.
