Pub tables, or dining tables at pub table or counter table height, seem to have been all the rage for the past few years. Family dining is moving up. Just as bath vanities have increased in height with the average adult height, dining might get there as well.
Most of the plans that I include on WoodworkCity.com come from my own needs, or just from Pub table and stools plans project that I would like to build in the distant future. My wife just mentioned using a pub table in a sunroom as an all-purpose type of table. It could be used for snacking, dining, homework, or computer work. Turns out, I have the material on hand to build a set for myself.
When searching for a plan, I wasn’t likely to find the exact style or dimensions that I wanted. Because of that, I am going to marry a plan that I found via Google Sketchup and a finished set that I located at GreatPubTables.com (very good prices, by the way). The Sketchup plan seems to be built from a complete plan from Lowe’s (see below).
The plans are in Google Sketchup format. Most experienced woodworkers should be able to run with the plans after seeing the Sketchup drawing. The beauty of using Sketchup for woodworking plans is that you can always go back and measure.
