About This Project

Built this fancy farmhouse table for the back patio. Made it 10' long. Instead of 4 2x10's I used 5 2x8's 10' long. All yellow pine from Home Depot. This is the first table or wood type construction project I have ever made. Screwed everything together, filled in holes with stainable wood filler, used 3 coats of Minwax Provencial stain and then 3 coats of outdoors Helmsman Spar Varnish (sanding with 000 steel wool between coats). Turned out great. Total materials including wood, screws, sanding, stain, varnish, and brushes was a little less than $300. The stain and varnish I bought was about $100, 1 gallon can of stain and 1 gallon can of varnish. Tools used were miter saw, cordless and corded drills, and sanders before staining. Thanks for the plans Ana-White.

Required Skill Level:

Type of Wood: 
yellow pine
Finish Used: 
MinWax Provencial stain (3 coats) Helmsman Outdoor Spar Varnish (3 coats 000 steel wool sanding between coats)

this is beautiful & just what we need

Gorgeous table and i love the finish. is it exposed to the elements or undercover? I need mine weatherproof & just was not sure if it would be possible.

Kit table

That is a great table. You clearly are a talented homemaker. I build kit cars. I bet with your skills we could do great work together.

Awesome Table

Looks great. I did the same but I went and bought a Home Depot table(pre-built) and just stained it. Looks almost identical except 1/4 of the time and cost. BTW I love the painted brick. Thanks for sharing. I give your table a 10!
