Easter is coming up, which means a delicious family dinner shared around your dinning room table. Tradition and memories take center stage. But what if you don’t have a dinning room table to gather around. You could go buy one, however if you are more of a DIYer then you might want to try building your own. The great thing about this is that you can customize the table to your exact liking. You can also save a lot of money buy building it yourself. If you have reclaimed wood you can build a large farm style table or you could distress new wood to get a similar look. Maybe you like a more contemporary look. If so keep things simple and consider alternative materials to wood. The article below highlights the steps you need to take to build an inexpensive rustic style dinning room table. You don’t have to be a woodworking pro to complete this project, however you will need to use power tools, so some previous experience is good to have. Take on this project and impress your friends and family with your woodworking skills. Enjoy all the memories that your family will build sitting around your beautiful table every evening and holiday.
If you’re like me, every time you wander through a big-box furniture store, you feel a little insulted. Here you are, a man, staring at relatively simple furniture, being asked to lay down large sums of money for a bookshelf, dining set, or desk. And if you know enough about wood to spot laminate and fiberboard, you’ll quickly see these expensive pieces of furniture have a shelf life (no pun intended) of about two years.
