Dining Area Remodel

I just finished remodeling the dining area where there had been a booth. I finished the walls with oak veneer and I made an 8" top and 2 6" shelves from solid 1" (3/4") red oak. It looks like it was built in. I lost some table space but gained about 12' of linear storage underneath. I could extend the table with a lot more work but since we really don't need 4 seating, I will leave it as is. There is always the picnic table outside in a pinch.

Here are a before and after.

I have more pics on how it came about at this site click here

Thanks,

Well I've been thinking about what to do there for a long time while other projects were getting done. This was the simplest solution and not too expensive (>$200 I think, mostly the cost of the oak). When I actually started it took about 3 days off and on. A good bit of the time was thinking and rethinking how I wanted it to look (and measuring and remeasuring). As it turned out, it was just what I had envisioned from a sketch.

I used 1 1/2" angle brackets and about 100 1/2" screws to put it together. The top can come off with unscrewing about 8-10 screws. That would give me access to removing the table or altering the table if I decided to. The table is anchored to the wall with its original channel bar setup. If I wanted to put a nicer stand alone table there I could do that too. I did not find anything I liked or would fit so I stayed with this table for now.

I don't think anyone could afford me.....

John
