With a couple of projects under our belts, my husband and I decided to tackle the Farmhouse Table. We shortened it to 6' to better fit our dining room, and also chose 1x6's instead of 2x6's to give it a lighter look. We also nixed the stretcher, and opted for 3x3 poplar table legs, that made the overall cost jump quite a bit. I absolutely love how it turned out, and the bench really fits well. It's stained and painted to match.
I love this!!! Such beautiful work.
Looking at building one of these in my new home. Love the finish look of your table :)
I love the style of this table. I've been wanting this style of dining table for our kitchen and this one might be it. Very nicely made!! Looks great!
Hi! I would love to copy this. Do you have plans for this farmer table and bench? Great job!
I love this table. Are there any plans for this? If not, can you write some details out as to how you created this, i.e., dimensions, wood type, etc.? Thanks much.
Are linked in the description.
I followed the link "Knocked off: Farmhouse Table" but received a 404 error. How did you reinforce/stabilize the legs without a stretcher?
Appears to be fixed now. If it gives you trouble, try this one: http://ana-white.com/2009/12/plans-farmhouse-table-knock-off-of.html
WOW!!!! I have just decided that I will also make my own furniture, and can think of a few people who will enjoy some home made furniture as gifts too.
I have a few projects, and would really appreciate advice on tools, what do I need to get started, the basics?
Secondly, my patio is ideal for a square table, I have these french posts that I would like to use as table legs. I love the look on this table, would like to do something similar, but just square. Any advice?
Hi there. Look on the left column under "Also of Interest" as well as in the Community boards for getting started info. Also, there are others that have made square tables, but you will have to search more to find them. I would try but I'm sorry I have limited time right now. Maybe somebody else will see this post and help you out. Happy building!
I really want to copy this table - do you have the plans you could send me?
I have a small dining and love this. Was wondering what the shopping and cutting list for this table but in a perfect square shape?
I am working on finishing my project. Same exact plan. You have the exact finish I want. I am scared however, How did you did you stain it with out getting in on the paint or vise versa. I don't want to ruin my project that I worked so hard on.
How did you get all the planks to line up so perfect and have no gaps? Did you fill in the gaps?
So I didn't have a jig for this project, but it's the perfect tool for planking boards with no gaps. This table involved a lot of teamwork of my husband pushing boards together while I drilled them in. Trust me, the jig is the better option ;)
Really beautiful! Love the modifications you made.
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
