A lot of hard work went into this table, but Im so happy with the result. I followed Ana whites plans closely and read all the Blog comments to help out. I made the table one 1x6 board wider and 4 inches longer to fit my space better. I also used a turnbuckle and threaded pipe for the stretcher to make it look a little more like the Pottery Barn Table. I think it gives it more of an industrial look. I used a red mahogony stain and plenty of polyurethane finish. I still have to build the bench, and i'm looking forward to using the plans from this site.
This looks amazing! And I thought making the farmhouse table notches were tough :)
Thanks...it was a lot of work, but well worth it. I have to tackle the bench next.
Just one question... I like your chairs as well. Where did you get them? Yes also got to have that lovely bench to match! awesome job!
Thanks, the chairs are from Cost Plus World Market. They are the verona chairs. Funny you should mention the bench...I'm building it today. I will post it when I'm done.
Did you make just the tabletop 4 inches longer or did you adjust the plans 4 inches longer for both the table top and base?
I adjusted the plans to account for the extra length and width.
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
