Dining table. From a request for something that was affordable yet a little “Wild” I decided a good starting point was to use some of the long narrow off cuts I had saved from various earlier projects. A narrow strip of Oak board is cut diagonally at 5 degrees, these two parts are then joined onto two contrasting Ply strips increasing the width whilst keeping the solid edge. Continuing the irregular pattern of the top 4 dowel legs of Sapele, Oak, Beech and Ash are then fitted to this with the end grain exposed through the top, these are held in place through friction and the addition of an Ash sub frame which in turn supports the top.
