How To Build A Dining Table PLAN (3 size options)




These plans are very detailed and in imperial units only. This dining table is built to last with traditional joinery methods. I built the table top with a wedged through mortise and tenon sprung breadboard end and included instructions in the plan to guide you through the process. It sounds more difficult than it is. While all of the joinery in this project can be made with other methods I encourage you to give the joinery methods I used a shot. The table base is constructed with mortise and tenon joints and has a sliding dovetail in the center support. The plan has everything you need and has three different sizes for you to choose from. The sizes are listed below. I used rough sawn lumber for my table but because there is no standard width or length for rough saw lumber I used dimensional lumber sizes to create the layout diagrams. The following is included in the plan:

  • 21 pages.
  • shopping list.
  • a separate lumber layout diagram for three different table sizes. Each table is about 30″ tall depending on your top thickness. The three size options are 62″ x 27″, 71″ x 33-3/4″, and 84″ x 40-1/2″
  • reference diagrams for specific part and assembly dimensions.
  • step by step 3D assembly diagrams with written instructions.
