Hi everyone, I am Mike Hanson. I will discuss handmade dining room tables on this website. I created my first wooden table using scrap lumber from the kitchen renovation. The table lacked the finer details included on commercial models, but I loved it just the same. I eventually picked up a lathe, so I could appropriately turn the legs for the table. I used my new tools to create an even better table as a gift to my mother. She adored my creation and it stills stands in her home today. I hope to deeply explore all of the different designs and techniques used in dining room table builds. My journey through this topic will hopefully inspire you to build or buy a table that is perfect for your home. Please come back to visit anytime. Thanks.
