  1. How to Make a Large River Table with Steel Legs

    Making river tables continues to be a popular project. Adding a creative twist to building tables with live-edge slabs, river tables place the live edges in the middle of the table and fill the gap between the two sides with epoxy resin. We worked with Cass Eck, founder of Stonemill & Co., to make a large river table display for the Grand Opening of the new Rockler store in Fairfax, Virginia. The result is this beautiful table that features live-edge maple slabs, grey color MAS epoxy and I-Semble Crossed Bar Steel Legs. Cass created a video that demonstrates the entire process of how she built this river table, including lots of tips and tricks.

    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
    by Stefani Terry, founder of Home with Stefani.
