If you saw my recent post for the J-pedestal table or follow me on social media then you knew this one was coming. If not then right when you get done enjoying this post then head over there. Nevertheless, the story goes, we were planning for Thanksgiving dinner this year and realized that we had a lot of people coming and no where to put them. So we came up with the brilliant idea of having Thanksgiving dinner in the workshop and making two huge dining table to boot. So naturally Jamie shot over to Pottery Barn and picked out a couple tables to use as inspiration. This table was based off the $2200 Stafford Dining Table. We built this one to be an outdoor table for when the spring comes so we built it out if cedar to naturally withstand the elements and gapped the boards for the top to allow drainage. This plan could easily be modified for an indoor table by using the top design seen on the J-pedestal table of just adding a 2×6 to the top and not gapping the boards. Either way, I hope you enjoy this project and video to go with it! Cheers!
