Re: Kitchen table design help.

That's the plan for now. Going to make chairs and a bench to match. It was a huge undertaking and we had no idea what we were getting into with it. The whole top is T&G there are no screws, the breadboards were mortise and tenon with dowels to prevent movement. The legs we used lags for stability bu...

Re: Remodeling dining room

Thanks! The basement is a few down the road. There is no egress right now and by code if I finish the space and get the permits (you know, do it the right way hahaha) there will need to be about 5000 in prep work done to just begin the project.

Re: Kitchen table design help.

Well it still is not done unfortunately but there has been some progress. Here are a few pics. Had a lot of issues with the wood warping because we chose to go with construction lumber. It was a great idea for a test run but will need to be redone in the near future.

Re: Remodeling dining room

Thinking about it the other day and realized I have not posted anything since last march. The dining room is done now. I am still making my way through the table from the other post but I will post some pictures there in a few minutes as well

Re: Remodeling dining room

Wife changed the plans at the last minute. Material list is almost identical except now I am covering one entire wall in the shiplap. I had to build a decorative false doorway to stop the shiplap at the end of the wall without having an exposed end. I want to put crown or similar decorative molding ...

Re: Remodeling dining room

Any suggestions on what to use as a chair rail? With the boards being .625" I have no idea what to put above it other than brickmold or 1x2.

Re: Kitchen table design help.

Ill try to explain better. The table will be around 7 foot long and 4 foot wide made up of 2x10 boards joined together. Each 2x10 will be just over 6ft long with a 4" tongue on the end (the 4 ft wide ends of the table will be receiving an end board). I will mortise a 4 inch deep groove into the end ...

Re: Kitchen table design help.

The plan was to join the planks with just glue. The M&T would be going from the table to the end board. I had debated doing a tenon on each of the boards individually but I think I will wait until after I have joined the top and make it all one piece. My biggest concern is movement. I have seen a lo...

Kitchen table design help.

I am making a table for the first time. Never tried my hand at furniture before and I am going to breadboard the ends of the table and plan on doing zero cross grain screwing for the table top to avoid any issues in the future. The problem I am running into is that I have decided to use 2x10 for the...

Re: Remodeling dining room

After looking at it some more I am definitely going to have to remove window and door trim but probably not build out as the color contrast will offer enough dimension to the room. Now the dilemma I am having is whether or not to miter the corners or just run one of the walls directly to the corner ...

Re: Remodeling dining room

Yes. Sorry I worded that kind of weird. I know I will need to remove all of the trim. I an wondering If i will be able to end at the new door trim and window trim or if the width of the boards will be identical. I was researching some more and noticed most shiplap is .625" and I anticipate using 1x ...

Remodeling dining room

I am going to remodel my dining room and put true 3/4" shiplap on the walls. I cannot figure our how to reapply the trim. All of the new fad on the internet is using 1/4" underlayment so it is very simple to just apply the wood and still have dimension against the trim and at the doorways and window...
