How to Make a Dining Table | Easy Woodworking Project
In this woodworking project I show you how to make a dining table with big beefy legs and an apron quickly and easily with pocket hole joinery. Everything is made from 3/4″ material including the legs and all boards are ripped to the same width which makes this project ideal for any skill level with a few basic tools.

that table is very great……beautiful
Love your video’s, thanks for sharing..
can you make this with just a circular saw?
How’s this frame holding up?
You inject lots of passion and encouragement to us. Thank you muuuuuch!!
Wondering how the table has done over the past few years? Did you end up having any movement issues that had to be fixed?
i watched until pocket holes were mentioned, and would it not have been quicker, certainly stronger to glue the 4 boards instead of mitering, a table gets lots of knocks, screws will work loose over time, mortise and tenon is the strongest joint, which is what should be used to connect apron to the legs, i have been making furniture for 45 years so i know a little bit,
When you were making the legs I was hoping to see the miter lock bit in the router. Any experience with these?
Looks great has it developed any charm over time. Thank you
Any update on how the table top is holding up after 3 yrs? Amazing build.
That’s beautiful cuz did it hold up so far cause I want to make one
if you put tape on the miter and then fold it, it will be easier to handle
That is exactly what I have been looking for our dining table I’m making as my very first project with no ideas how woodworking works. So, wish me luck 🍀 … I think 💭 I need a lot of them… Cheers!!!
Awesome video. Thanks for the help.
Thank you , you are good person Mohammed from country called Libya
How about periodic follow-ups on this build… let us know if there have been any problems and how you would repair them. This would be helpful for us, and it would get you additional views on "old" videos, because people would look back to the build process after watching the follow-up report. I’d really like to know if the table has shown any problems with wood movement. Thanks. I like this project and am considering making the same thing, but I’d like to know, first, if it worked!
what is the point of making legs with empty inside VS simply glueing wood to make legs 100% wood (like in most cases)?
Is this just to showoff the technique? Or to save wood? Because it is more complicated and takes more time…
I love that table 😀
If somebody wants a fast clean strong table I will use thicker rails so that I can combine biscuit joints with pocket holes.
That means jointing the table up with biscuits then gluing it up and then going back and putting the pocket holes in it. Very little clamping is then needed to put the pocket holes in and it give me a double jointing method.
Failure makes you better….
Awesome attitude 🙂 that is exactly how I see woodworking. Let’s all get over the snobbery and be more encouraging after all sometimes mistakes turnout to be breakthroughs that in time we come to see as Awesome 🙂
Thanks for sharing your tips, you do great work
Too much machinery
Your work shop very clean…
"how to make a dining table"………only shows the process of making the legs 🤣.
this is so beautiful, i want to make a table like this someday
Great video looks great
what about a very simple table with just a drill and hand saw?
Nice table sir… I love woodwork…… I enjoy watching your video……. ♥️♥️♥️♥️👍…. I
As a board and tabletop gamer, I wanna make the legs using the interior as built in dice chutes/towers!
thanks to your creativity, I’ve learned so much,
it helps a lot to tape the miters while they are laying flat.then flip them over, apply glue and fold. the tape will hold them perfectly in place. easier than pins, more effective than pins, faster than pins, and nothing to fill. an even BETTER way is to use a rabbet joint instead of miters. its easier and you dont get a seam on the corner where its more noticeable. having solid corners really makes it look more like a solid leg. if your rabbets are 5/8 deep on 3/4 material and you do a 1/8" roundover, the roundover hides the seam almost entirely because it just looks like the edge of the profile. 🙂
I like your channel nice table by the way but i would just like to comment that I would have like better a smart design something you can take apart or upgrade parts or pieces to it for example i would go for building the square frame than the top and legs all detachable. Ease to store or transport. But that’s just me i guess im too into transformers
As always, an amazing video. Love the music!
Nice job lt cool
Love your channel. I am a big fan of the humour AND the lack of loooooooong process shots. Thank you so much for sharing yur knowledge (pain free LOL). Cheers! –A fellow learnererrr
Holy shits I just learned that you are the author of the music. DAMN, talk about talent.
Looks awesome 👏
wait a second?!
You’re Canadian AND Mexican! How utterly awesome is that 😍
Make it wooden with the help of the Wood Prix instructions.
Hey thar, Mr. Something! I’m assuming ya still use this table, if not where it is in this video, somewhere else in the house. Did it fair okay? Or did you need to tweak it a lil’ bit?
Yeah easy if you have a table saw impossible if you do not 😂😂😂😂🙈
Great Teacher Can you built one for me & How much do I need to pay you? Thank you plz Reply!!
very very good job
What type of wood did you use
I don’t know why I watched this. I used to do woodworking professionally but it was still entertaining to watch.
I’ve been looking for legs made like this. I’m building an island. I can draw the plan but watching you build it really helped. Thank you
