This was my first time using white oak in a woodworking project, and I really liked it. For this dining table, I took a different approach with the stretchers, but basically not having one. Instead, I made the upper portion of the leg more robust, and it attaches directly to the underside of the table.

    If your day job isn't woodworking it should be filmmaking. I've gotten to the point where I won't watch a new video of yours until I'm sure I won't be interrupted as I watch, usually with both hands wrapped around my morning coffee. It's a great way to get a positive start on the day. Just out of curiousity, what inspired the use of oak for this build? I'm so accustomed to your use of walnut I thought I'd ask about the change.

    Thank you for yet another outstanding offering.

    I am not a master woodworker like you but I built a table with such legs a while ago… Mine is very pretty too but not 100% sturdy. How is this one?

    How long is the table?

    Yes, your tool was overheating. This guy took apart a Festool Tracksaw and explains the problem

    did you make chairs for the dining table too?

    As far as the bevels on the top go, if you had the luxury of being able to grab a second set of hands, i would have roughed the long edges on the jointer by tilting the fence. Obviously end grain on the jointer would be impossible and dangerous for more than a few obvious reasons. I'm also lucky enough to work full-time in a woodshop with industrial machines… so i have a sliding tablesaw and an 18" jointer at my disposal.

    Lovely and elegant table. Nicely done.

    Im planing a table design similar to this but I'm unsure as to what thickness I should use for the top and for the legs. What did you go with? 1.5"? Great stuff! I come back to your videos often.

    This video and project are equally as stunning. I wish it was a full length 2 hour movie.

    I've seen a LOT of your videos and love the designs. However I'm curious how strong and sturdy the legs are on most things you make. While being gorgeous, they are thin and everyone else always makes huge chunky legs. Any insight to the strength and durability of most things you make would help me a lot. Thank you!

    Excellent video, but why is there so much burning of the wood?
