Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
We saw this table at a furniture store but did not want to pay the hefty price for it. We took a few pics and then looked for similar plans on this site and found some. I then purchased the lumber, yellow pine and timber for the legs. The top is three 2X12 and the ends and removable extensions are 2X6. The legs are 4X4 timber. The table is extremely heavy and I needed a second person to help with the cuts and putting it together. It took about 8 hours to completely assemble and another several hours of sanding and then finally about three hours to stain. It was well worth all the time I spent putting this together!
