About This Project

I really really wanted a farmhouse table...but...we had a space that needed a square table AND I needed to fit 8-12 people (or more!) so we modified Ana's farmhouse table plans to not only be square, but really big as well. This table is 6 ft on each side. Since the table itself was so big, we reversed the breadboard ends and used a 2x4 on 2 ends just to even out the size a bit since is not rectangular...and the area is quite small but needed a big table. I didnt want it to be completely out of proportion. We did not use a stretcher because of the square factor, but each leg is a 4x4 post and reinforced underneath. It's HEAVY. It won't be moved anytime soon! I'm loving it:)

I love your table and can't wait to start building ours. I'm still not sure if we're going to go with rectangle or square--do you happen to know the dimensions of your table? I how you have your chairs (2 at each opening) and I'm wondering if we have room for that. I'm going to go tape out a square table and measure it and I'd love to see how it compares to the size of yours.

Thanks--and great job!

Just wanted to see where you got your chairs? i love them and have been having a hard time finding a set i really like. thanks!!

I love your table. How did you get the thin groove between each plank of wood on the table top so that it was not flush like the rest of the tables made with this plan?

I think it adds tremendous character to the table. I would appreciate if you could share how you got this effect.

Thanks!

Hi there! I love this table and am looking for to make a table JUST like it. Will you please share your plans with me?

Would love a how-to on this table, especially measurements. I like the taller look of the table and i'm guessing you just found chairs to go with it. Pictures of the underside would be great too.

Would love a how-to on this table, how you reinforced the legs and so forth. Do you have any pictures of the underside and what are the measurements on it.

we are planning to build this exact table. do you have any plans or measurements. And did you brace the legs and how tall is the table. How did you separate the grooves? Any info or extra pictures would help thank you and it looks great

I built a table similar to this that is 66"x66". This allows for eight people to sit comfortably. If anyone would like these plans let me know and I can e-mail them to you. It's very sturdy and very heavy. I already have several orders backing up from family members.
