I like it; simple but useful. Might have to put this on the winter project list...

I need to build one big enough for seating 10 or 12 on a regular basis. And then I need a room big enough to put it in! I'm being serious, my house has no dining room and the kitchens laid out in such a way that my table won't fit. Its a quandry....

What about a enclosed front porch on the front of your house? make it a dual use room.

I apologize to Mr HFF for suggesting that :D

it used to be in kitchen now it is in dining room. I also built two wings that slide in ends to extend it another three feet. Ours will seat 10 regularly and with extensions 12 to 14. built it with 6- 2x8x10, 4- 2x4x8 and 2- 4x4x8. edge glued 2x8 together. screwed on boards to hold together. screwed 2x4's around edge. carriage bolted 4x4 posts in corner for legs. built table, sanded and had first coat of stain on in 4 hours. stained it next morning. presented it to wife that night for valentine present. total cost $110. cost of similar table from furniture store ranged in price from $900 to $1300 (no chairs). Ours is higher then normal table because every time my in laws would eat over they spill food down the front of themselves. now closer to plate so less mess. I want to build benches for sides and get some nice captain chairs for ends.
