What makes a table? How do you build one? What do I need to do to make a good one?

Tables come in many shapes, several sizes, and each can make us feel differently when sitting down at them for a meal or to write a letter or to set our well-earned drink down upon. They can have different intentions as well. Come and learn how to shape yours for your own design taste.

There are functional requirements for any table that are slightly variable, aesthetic requirements which are extremely variable, and construction requirements, which are almost set in stone. Discover how to address each of these needs for any table that you build.

Get information on wood movement and how that affects your design. See how to cut some basic joints for building a leg and apron design or a trestle style table.
