Disclaimer: I didn't design the table. I built it from free plans found on shanty-2-chic.com. See below for a link. The table itself is based on a table from Restoration Hardware which sells for somewhere around $2500.
My sister-in-law and her husband recently moved back home from out of town. They have a dining room, but no dining table so she asked me to build one for her. She picked out some plans online and they are free from Shanty-2-Chic.com. She told me not to change a thing. The only things I did different were related to the construction and assembly. Otherwise, it looks just like the one in the plans.
It's made completely out of wood I bought from Home Depot. I had some struggles dealing with the low quality of the wood and certain knotty areas, but it came out looking okay. My sister-in-law likes it which is what is important, I guess.
Some details not covered in the video:
I made my own dowels out of a dowel rod because it is cheaper that way. I used poplar or red oak dowels, since they are a little more dense than pine. The stain color is called Carrington. I used matte finish polyurethane - 3 coats on the top - according to the plans. On the base I did a coat of wipe-on glossy poly and then another top coat of the matte poly. The nooks and crannies of the base made it a huge pain to stain.
I wanted to take some more final shots and footage, but my sister-in-law's lights were not working. Had I known I would have taken some good footage before I delivered it. Sorry if a couple of shots are too dark.

They said you could build this for $110, but I spent closer to $200. The $110 must be just for wood. I had to buy screws, sanding pads, dowel rod, polyurethane, brushes, rags, etc... in order to have everything I needed for the project.
