How To Build a HIGH QUALITY Dining Table with LIMITED TOOLS // #DIY // #Woodworking

I recently got a commission from a local client to build a custom Dining Table top for a set of pre-fabricated steel legs they had previously bought on Etsy. I went to my local lumber supplier and got pre-surfaced 1.75" thick white oak to build everything out of. I spent $350 on materials and only used 3 power tools: The circular saw, Drill/Driver, and Belt Sander. "Nice projects don't require tons of tools." This is something I say all the time… practice what you preach.

Chris & Ben, looking sharp xD

Hubbard's Handmade - October 24, 2018

Nice table buddy! Congrats on the new products, I like the look of those clamps.

MarineHeartPink - October 24, 2018

Ok, ok… I admit I giggled at the pictures of Chris and Ben…

    Martín Bernal - October 24, 2018

    I laughed out loud at work!

    Ben - October 24, 2018

    I shat my pants in front of my class!

    Joonas Loppi - October 25, 2018

    It was so funny I peed my pants while wrestling an alligator while at the same time watching this video

    Riana DeMaio - July 6, 2019

    I loled

Taylor Hubbell - October 24, 2018

Nice Build Mike, now its time I buy ANOTHER RZ mask.

rodney g - October 24, 2018

Maddux Woodworks - October 25, 2018

Man, I’m really digging that finish! Nicely done!

MrChlayten - October 25, 2018

Was gonna complain about the ad..
Then I saw my Favorite quote of all times by my favorite idol of all times, Michael Scott..So yeah, you’re cool.. 3:55

Nick Pearson - October 25, 2018

Gotta admit… I had to replay just to see how Chris and Ben had become so GQ. Excellent build.

Bevelish Creations - October 26, 2018

Whoa I think I saw Chris in a serial killer tv show, and Ben in some movie with Harry Potter!

EffinDre - January 8, 2019

Just double tap to fast fwd. Quit complaining.
He’s fast and efficient. I’d rather see ads that make him money than listen to some random rant that doesn’t help me build the table.

    Jerret Cain - March 28, 2019

    Couldn’t have said it better. People lose sight of why they are watching the channel…to learn. Who cares about a couple of ads.

    Chuanxiang Zhou - July 24, 2019

    Wish I could like this comment twice. Free videos and free platform. Go watch others or make videos by yourselves.
    I am genuinely happy for every youtube channel I like gets sponsored. Heck yeah, grab that money and make more videos.

Franklin Bowles - February 22, 2019

This was pretty cringey

Erik Anderson - March 30, 2019

Hey Mike, where did you find those chairs? Those are the exact style of chairs I have been looking for. Great build by the way!

Lukas Bombach - May 15, 2019

This feels like watching a lengthy ad

Brandy Hawking - May 22, 2019

Excellent to see that Sto Doys’s plans has new plans what helped me save some money and energy to build it.

Super Heri - May 26, 2019

limited tools? I count 24 tools

    gotlogg - July 11, 2019

    Limited tools means a much different thing than it used to.

    Dylan Thomas - July 17, 2019

    Limited tools as in basic woodworking tools, limited has changed a lot as the other comment said.

    Donavan McElroy - July 23, 2019

    For a maker, the tools he used were fairly basic and common. If you’re a beginner or not a woodworker at all, I can see how you may look at it differently though…

Stefan - June 13, 2019

Damn.. Why doesn’t they sell this kind of tables? Clean, robust and freaking awesome!
