Build Your Own Dining Table PlansAdvertisement
Build Your Own Dining Table Plans – My mission is to teach you how to confidently build magazine-worthy DIYs. I used to be terrified of power tools which is why I am a firm believer that ANYONE can DIY.
People often think DIY dining tables are difficult, but most of them are actually pretty beginner-friendly projects. The third thing we ever built was a dining table.
Build Your Own Dining Table Plans
I think the fear comes from the large size. Yes, they do require some lumber, but for many floors they are pretty simple builds. Today, we’re sharing with you the best DIY dining table plans in the country.

When building an outdoor dining table, you’ll want to consider ways to make it more resistant to the elements. This could be by choosing a water resistant wood or a great exterior finish.

Diy Retrofitted Dining Table Top
Whether you’re just starting out or you’re an experienced DIYer ready to unlock the full potential of DIY, our courses are here to help. In this post, I’ll show you how to build your own dining table modern DIY with a “floating top!”
A few years ago, I built the same modern dining table design when we first moved into our small garage at home. We have used it for three years and loved it.
BUTTTTT… We recently sold that house and the buyers have asked us to leave that table and chair behind. (I mean… I don’t blame them. It’s a nice set! Ha!)
So before we packed up and moved out, I went ahead and built a new dining table to take with us to the new place.
Diy Dining Table Bench Plans
Since I loved the old one so much, I built this new one with the same basic design, only, this time, I assembled it a little differently and used thicker lumber.
I’ll show you how I built both versions of the DIY Modern Dining Table below in plans so you can build your own, and I’m also sharing a video tutorial, right here which you can check out for more details:
As you can see from the material list above, you can build this table from 1x material (which is typically ¾” thick) or 2x material (which is typically 1 ½” thick). I’ve built it both ways and it looks/works great.
I would not recommend using 1x material if you are making a very long table as it will be more prone to sag over the longer arc.
Diy Wood Beam Round Dining Table
You can use any species of lumber you prefer for this. It just depends on your budget, availability and preferences. I used 1x poplar for the older table and 2x maple for the newer one.
Standard dining table heights are 30 inches tall, the heights don’t vary much as they are made to be used with standard sized chairs.
Widths usually range from 36-42″ wide…there is no specific “standard”. And lengths vary greatly – typical length is between 6 and 8 feet.
I built mine about 40″ wide and 80″ long and that was enough to accommodate 6 chairs, potentially 8 if you want to add chairs at the ends.

I’ve listed the x10 boards for the tabletop in the materials list just to make things easier. Rated x10 boards are actually about 9 ¼” wide. Four of these together would give you a top about 37 inches wide.
But, if you want bigger, you can use x12s instead, or you can use any combination of lumber you want to put together to make any size top you want. A couple of x6, a few x10… it doesn’t have to be specific as long as you have enough to make your top the size you want.
For my table I used boards of various widths andAdvertisement
