About This Project

This was my first project inspired by Pottery Barn and while shopping in a local furniture store we realized the cost to have something very similar would cost $1500-$2000. This table was cut and prepped in my garage and then transported to my daughters house in my car and assembled and finished there. The bench is constructed from left over boards. I choose not to use 2X4 legs but rather opted for 4x4's. The length was shortened to 5' for a cross bar was not neccessary. I used carriage bolts to attach the legs to the shirt in case they ever needed to be disassembled. The top is not glued on, only PH screws used. This has been a very satisfying first project, thanks Ana for showing me the way to having lovely homemade furniture that really impresses, is very well made and for a fraction of the cost.

Estimated Cost: 
$150 includes bench
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
pine
Finish Used: 
minwax stain and polycoat.

What a Great Build

You did a wonderful job on the table and bench. I like the idea of using the carriage bolts and not gluing on the top. I have done the same for a couple of projects especially if you need to take a table apart or if the top should need repair.
