Pedestal Dining Table (DVD)
The perfect balance of strength and elegance. Now you can build a modern, central-column table that's made for every day. Woodworker Timothy Rousseau's pedestal dining table offers a unique approach beyond the traditional leg and apron table design. Made of walnut and featuring a central column joined together using a combination of lap joints and traditional mortise-and-tenon joints, this table is easily built using basic woodworking tools.
Smooth lines, sturdy build. Rousseau's pedestal dining table features a graceful top that sports gently curved sides. Inviting to the touch and pleasing to the eye, this table will be a family treasure for years to come.
This intermediate-level project includes a bonus digital plan and covers key areas for the build.
