Table Base Design and Finishing
Furnished content.

Last time I was here, I was asking for some help with what I called the bubble leg desk. That project actually turned out great and the customer is very happy.

This time, my sister-in-law is asking that I build her and my brother a new dining table. This is sort of what she wants.

Top will be 80" x 45" out of oak, preferablywhite.

The top is easy enough, just the size and weight make it challenging to move around.

For the base, I am thinking along the lines of building plywood boxes approximately 8" wide x 28 depth. Adding support pieces in the top to attach cross members that would fit into notches. The cross members will connect the two bases and provide for attaching the top.

For finishing the bases, Ithink that applying a black dye, stain, or even flat back paint first to the boxes, then applying pre-finished wood strips.

I am interested inideas on constructing the base, and how you would finish it.
