We needed a small dining room table for the house that we are renovating. When coming up with a design for this one I wanted to do a simple base, but make it interesting (if that makes any sense at all). I like to add interest to a piece by introducing angles so for this dining table I decided to make it extra interesting by introducing a double angle also know as a compound angle. This table is small but can comfortable accommodate four in a narrow area and even 6 in a pinch. However, this design could easily be adapted for a longer and/or wider table by just lengthen the required pieces. Enjoy!
