Sellers Home Dining Table: Episode 10

Dining Table EP10 KF

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

In this episode, we take you from the final joinery–and fitting the components into the whole piece–to gluing up, finishing with a water-borne finish and then delivery from garage to dining room in Sellers’ Home. There are so many small features and tips in this episode, and it’s altogether intriguing to watch the development for laying out the braces with half-housings and more. We hope that you enjoy this episode as much as we did.

    We’ll, I consider that to be time VERY well spent, following this build. Thanks for this, Paul, as usual, I picked up a number of very useful things along the way. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing how you approach the dining chairs.

    Beautiful, I love the concept and design. Can’t wait to see the chairs and learn how to make them. Thank you so much for sharing and teaching Paul.

    I am just curious . . . did Paul somehow combine several shorter clamps to make a long one??? I would love to get a closer look at that or an explanation if [email protected]

      Yeah, seems like Paul connected two clamps with the wood insert and some kind of a bolt/screw.
      It’s a brilliant idea!
      I usually don’t bother and use three clamps to make up a long clamp 🙂

      Yes, I agree, that would be great too!
      I wonder what kind of screw/nut combination is that…

    Bravo, Paul. Wonderful from start to finish.

    Thanks Paul. Do you typically put any felt or leather pads on the bottom of your legs? Do you have any tips on how to do so? I’ve used felt pads with the self adhesive but I’d like to use something that might be a bit more traditional in terms of application if such a method exists.

      I believe one option would be a leather patch glued on using hide glue.

    I look forward to the episode in 20 or so years time when you revisit this table to give it a makeover.

    Did Paul mentioned that water based varnish is easy to maintain/apply in a specific area?… For that to happen, doesn’t the varnish of the whole surface has to be removed and then reapplied?
