Octagon-Shaped Dining Room Table

What do you do when you want a round dining table and your spouse wants a square? Meet in the middle and build an octagon-shaped table!

That’s exactly how the story went for Diana from Down Oxford Street and her husband. After a little compromise, they decided to build this gorgeous table following plans from Ana White.

Diana says, “I’m very happy with how the table turned out. I will admit when I saw how many angles it needed I got a little intimidated but with the right tools and handy man (or woman) it’s a piece of cake. “

The original inspiration came from the Benchwright Fixed Pedestal Dining Table from Pottery Barn.

Here is the table’s base taking form:

Diana and her husband used wood glue and a nail gun to secure each piece together.

For the chairs, Diana decided to go with the metal chairs that she picked up at Target. She was never 100% sold on them but figured they will do just fine for now.
