How to Whitewash Cedar and make a Modern Dining Table

This video shows how to make a modern dining table for a small room out of whitewashed cedar. I used pre-made steel table legs from TableLegs.com use this link
and coupon code HOMEMADE10 for 10% off any order.

The unusual geometric shape is because I made it for the dining room in the shipping container house I built. The room is really narrow and a I didn’t want a boxy rectangular table to eat up all that floor space. Here is a link to the video series that shows how I built the shipping container house: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnoUKype0fVkWtCleYWBT1w

I made the table top by ripping cedar 2x6s down to about 2-1/2” and then gluing them together. The MakerBrand T-bar clamps that I used are perfect for large table top glue ups. Here is a link to makerbrand products: https://makerbrandco.com/collections

Gorilla wood glue is my glue of choice for projects like this. Not only is it super strong it is not as yellow in color as other wood glues. https://amzn.to/2SBfmui

The table top wasn’t perfectly flat so I used my Ryobi Angle Grinder with a power carving disc to take down the high points and bevel the edges: https://amzn.to/2SCK9qq

Paints and finishes:
I used Varathane Antique White Stain: https://amzn.to/2Hc7vkv

And 2-coats of Varathane Water-Based Polyurethane to seal it: https://amzn.to/2SBgoGG
