Farmhouse Table

About This Project

I have always helped my dad with projects, but this was the first one I ever did without my dad! The directions were very easy and I had no trouble at all. The table turned out beautiful. I modified it a bit by making it a little longer and using a 1x2 on the ends to cover the rough edges instead of a bread board. I also made 2 benches as we are a family of 10. I have 2 high chairs attached to the end. This table will seat 12 adults comfortably! I am so excited to finally have a big sturdy table. Thank you sooo much for this site. I have a new hobby now! ;o)

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
I spent around 175 on materials for 2 benches and the table, including the stain.
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
pine
Finish Used: 
I sanded first with a random orbit sander 80 grit, then a 120, then 220. I wiped everything down with a tack cloth, then stained with special walnut. After 3 coats of stain, I used a clear lacquer. I put about 7 coats of lacquer! That may be overkill, but I have 8 children, 6 of which are boys!

Absolutely love this table,

Absolutely love this table, you did an amazing job! I was looking to buy a nice dining table that would accommodate 12. I may tackle this project! Thanks so much!
