Timber Frame Dining Table

This timber frame dining table would make a great project to start your framing journey. The table uses smaller 4”x4” and 4”x6”  members, so there are no big heavy timbers to lug around your shop. But there are four mortise and tenon joints to practice your skills on, and a lovely wedged tenon connects the strut to the posts.  Even if you are an experienced timber framer, this table is a great way to celebrate the craft and show off your skills.

The table top is fastened to the base with 5/16" Offset Z-Clips

This  36”x60”  dining room table can be adjusted in length to suit your needs, but it would comfortably seat six people. The top and bottom chords are inset twelve inches from the head and foot of the table, allowing plenty of knee room for diners.

When you buy these plans you will receive a link to download the PDFs of the plan sets.  The construction set shows you three dimensional views of the table so you can see what you are creating. There is an exploded view so you can see how the pieces fit together. Then there are dimensioned plan and elevation views. We also provide you with a 6-page piece drawing set, that shows you every cut you will be making, with dimensions. Print these PDFs from your home printer and get framing!

    Didn’t furniture makers use pegs for joining?
    If the top were thicker one could drill blind holes from the bottom and holes through the rails and then drive the pegs in from the bottom.
    Arguably you would not be able to lift the table by just grabbing hold of the top.

  2. Yes, furniture makers used pegs back in the day and they would work in this case for attaching the table to the top. I elected to use screws in this case as they will allow you to pick up the table and move it around if needed. I think that would still work with pegs depending on how tight they are in. One additional element to think about it the expansion and contraction of the table top through the seasons.

  3. If my memory serves me correct, I believe these original tables were made to have the tops removable. During the turn of the century people did not have multiple rooms and had limited space. Often the tops were removed and the bases being pined together made these tables like today’s folding tables. Easily taken apart and stored out of the way to allow those small homes the space they needed.
