walnut dining table with builder

How to build this modern walnut dining table.
I’ve always imagined a round table in my dining room. After falling in love with the perfect mid-century table from a high-end furniture store (costing over $3,000), I decided to try and make my own. Using the gorgeous walnut lumber from Rockler was a no brainer. I’m breaking down this table build step by step so you can build it too.
All the materials for this table can be ordered directly from Rockler and delivered your doorstep, see the Material List below. Download the free step-by-step instructions to build this table.

This project was designed and built
