About This Project
I made this table using Ana's design for the Farmhouse Table and the original from Restoration Hardware. I put the stretcher supports back on the outside and added the extensions.
I also switched out the 2x6 top for 2x8s and attached them all from the bottom; I didn't want to deal with concealing screws on the table surface. The switch meant the boards on the sides are attached only on the innermost 3 inches. I drilled up through the 2x4 aprons and used 3 1/2 inch screws every six inches to make sure they were secure.
It's enormous and seats 12 if needed.
