How To Build A Conference Table / Dining Table w/ Walnut & Steel

How To Build A Conference Table / Dining Table w/ Walnut & Steel

This walnut and steel conference table build (could also be a dining table) was my most involved woodworking project to date, including drawbored breadboard ends, processing rough lumber, panel glue ups, and more. The build also included a welded steel base using 1" square tubing.

.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }
