Dinning Table

son #2 graduated year 12 on Thursday night & for his wood technology project he made me an extension dinning table. he came second :o) for the table & third over all in the year. we are so proud of him & the table is beautiful.

the table top is made from Sydney Red Gum
the table surround/frame is made from New Guinea Rose wood

the legs are gum, rose wood & then gum sandwiched together

when it is all 3 pieces it will seat 12 comfortably or 15 if you need it

the room is big enough so it will always be the three pieces.  i will need to make new table cloths or maybe sew some of the ones i have together.
now i am on the look out for chairs. i want a bench seat for one side, 2 carver chairs for the ends & chairs for the other side. but for now our old 70's plastic orange chairs will have to do.

What a beauty! And I know from having a wood-working uncle that it is a very useful trade and always will be.
