The type of joints the plans require will make a difference as well. Plans with simple miter joints can be carried out by most any handy person & a miter box. If the plan requires rabbets or dados in its jointing, you will need at the minimum a table saw & a router.

When buying a dining room table, you may think it’s as simple as finding a style you like. But, there are many things to consider. For instance, how big of an area you have to accommodate your new table. Also think whether this table will strictly be for eating on.

The Cost

The next decision when choosing your dining table, is what material it will be made out of. Recently, glass top tables have been a huge hit. But, if you have children, a glass top table, may not be a great choice. If your children will be using the table for more than just eating, you will soon find out that hand prints are your worst enemy! If you plan on using glass cleaner on your table top every day, then it shouldn’t be that big of a deal. But, if you’re like me and you only brush off the crumbs after dinner, then a glass top probably isn’t for you. Also, think about how the glass is attached. Unless you get one where the glass is fitted into another structure, then most likely it either stays in place with suction cups or small rubber pieces. Although the glass is normally very heavy, if you have children constantly leaning on the edge of the table, or reaching across the table and putting weight on the edge, then the glass can and will eventually slip out of place. Wood tables are always an option. In fact, you can choose wood in almost any colour to match your d├ęcor. Wood is known to be very sturdy, and is a favourite with parents everywhere. While, it’s not as easy to wipe clean with glass cleaner, it can and will withstand crayon, marker, and even the occasional action figures fighting karate style on it. The plus is that you can find a wooden table to match with just about any decorative style. The final choice is marble and granite. These tend to be very pricey compared to glass and wood. If your style is more traditional, then this may be the perfect match. Granite and marble top tables can be a hassle when you have young children at home. You must be sure to clean up spills immediately, and always use a coaster under drinks. You also cannot use just any household cleaners on granite and marble. This may be too high maintenance for someone with a busy lifestyle.
