New Dinette Table (sneak preview)

I'm in the process of changing the configuration of our dinette. Here is a preliminary pic of the new cherry table top. I still need to stain it to match the existing cherry veneer. We got the chairs at Ikea.

GOOD JOB!
Looks like you can actually enjoy sitting with all the extra room.

Thanks... It's just the 2 of us and we'd never use the dinette for sleeping. Now we have comfortable chairs and more room because the dinette bench doesn't stick out next to the fridge.
I'm installing Saturday to get ready for a 2 week trip to Pensacola, FL. I'll post a pic next week.

Great looking hardwood table and that gives me the incentive to change out mine as I have the same interior as you. But in the meantime I'll just have my favorite beer as a tribute to the new table.

Great job! When with two people the dinette storage is useless. And also if you have a wheel well it is hard to fit 4 people on the table. Definitely have to discuss this idea with DW. Those dinette benches are hard on the butt and back anyway. I have to go the pine way with a couple of pine chairs. Looks like you used one leg and the other side is fasten to the wall?

I actually built a 6" deep box where my wife stores her MacBook and the new table mounts to the top.
I also made a storage compartment that runs across the top of the wheel well. I'll post some pics in a few days.

I just installed the finished table this afternoon in preparation for a 2 week trip to Pensacola Beach, FL.



The right side of the table is held up by a box that I built to store my wife's MacBook


I constructed a storage bin across the wheel well to hold my iPad, camera, tripod, binoculars, etc.


USB charging ports


I had to re-route some plumbing to accommodate the chair leg. This will be covered by a box.


The bathroom door can open when the chair is pushed all the way in.


Over time the cherry top will darken so it matches the existing cherry finish.
I'm going to paint the the walls and the boxes I just installed this winter.
