Minimalist Modern Dining Table Pedestal for Round or Square Tabletop

Why I Build this Modern Pedestal for a Round or Square Tabletop

I have been dreaming of building this base for a long time – it is so beautiful and with the solid design, minimizes the overall business of a room, as chair legs are hidden.

I had a 60″ round dining table top that I built a few years ago, and thought this would be the perfect chance to upgrade the base, give it an overall new look, and try out a new plan design.

Here’s the dining table without chairs, I am using it paired with my easy to building dining banquette that I built last year.

Can you see how this base doesn’t look busy with chairs?  I love that about this dining table base!


How I Built this Modern Pedestal Dining Table Base – Video Tutorial

This is actually a pretty substantial project and quite heavy.  I wanted it to feel solid, not like a hollow core door, so I built it using 3/4″ plywood.  You could also use pine project panels if matching a pine or softwood tabletop.

Here’s a video showing how I built this dining table base.
