Dining Table and chairs

I build this for a friend whose family are large people. They have broken chairs so asked me to build this set for their ding area. The chairs are built from 2×4s and 1×4s while the table top is made from four quarter pine and I used the extension hardware from another yardsale table I had found.

Your table and chairs look like they will stand up to many years of use.

Custom made to order, they must be very pleased. Well done!! I just love the size and scale. One of my upcoming winter projects is exactly what you have already built. Great work.

Nice job. How did you find so many clear 2×4s? You must have gone through several stacks or the lumber must be 100 times nicer where you are.

That’s a very big project.
