DIY Herringbone Dining Room Table
DIY herringbone dining room table, complete! It took a couple weekends of working during my child’s nap time, but overall it was a pretty easy, quick, and painless project!
Check out these before, during and after pictures!
2x4s for legs/ supports
1x4s for herringbone strips
1x2s for framing
First, cut the plywood for a desired table size and attach under supports
Next, attach herringbone strips- started with each full size, and cut accordingly.
After attached, use circular saw to even the edges out and attach 1x2 strips to the outside
here is what one corner looks like
Build square leg frames and attach underneath then fill all of the small gaps with wood filler
Keep filling all the tiny gaps with wood filler and sand until smooth
this is what it looks like after I sanded it down
Lastly, I painted the legs black (I used matte black) and apply pre-stain wood conditioner.
And then apply stain of your choice and lightly sand until smooth- apply top coat!
Here is the finished product! 🤩
This is how I decorate it with a clear vase

This is a really nice looking table. I plan to add it to my to-do build list!
This is absolutely stunning! Using this to DIY my table next week. How long is your table and how many pieces of each item listed did you use? Thanks in advance!
Can we see a pic of where you attached the legs underneath? What size nails are in your nail gun? Super beginner…sorry if those are dumb questions! 😊
What is the length & width of your table?
