Building your own dining table is a great DIY project. A solid dining table is an essential piece of furniture for any home. It’s used for everyday meals, homework, games and entertaining, and many a memory is created around the dining room table. Building your own dining table allows you to customise it to suit the size of your room, so you’ll get the perfect fit.
In this Easy As guide we’re making our table from a timber tongue and groove door. It’s a great way of recycling old materials, and often these are made of some lovely native timbers that will come up looking pretty impressive. Old doors aren’t hard to find – your local demolition yard is likely to have a few to choose from. But no matter what you construct your table out of, the principles you’ll learn in this guide can be customised to suit your needs. The standard height for a table is 750mm, but the width and length of your table could vary. This guide will also show you a few other valuable DIY skills that you can apply to many other projects.
