Author Notes: 

One hundred and twenty five dollars. 

 $125. 

 That's what this table - made of solid wood - cost to make.

I teamed up with my DIY friend Ashley from Shanty2Chic for this plan.

We changed up the top a little to really show off those beautiful solid wood boards!

And got a little fancy with the legs to really make this table unique and full of character!

Now we just need some benches! {hint hint}

Here's from Ashley:

There is no way I could have a $1,000 (plus shipping and tax) dining table in our home with 2 boys and a toddlerWinking smile So, as always, I enlisted the help of our very sweet and talented friend, Ana White! She nailed it and after her awesome plans and my elbow grease, I now have a ridiculously gorgeous, expensive-looking, grand dining table and it only cost me $125!  Who would have thought that 2x4's and pine boards could be so fancy!  

If you want to make this table for yourself, of course we got you covered with the free plans.  But take a second to stop over and read from Ashley at Shanty2Chic how she built and finished this table.  Don't you LOVE that finish?  So beautiful!

General Instructions: 

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!

Dimensions: 
Dimensions shown above.
Cut List: 

LEGS
6 - 2x4 @ 21 3/4”
6 - 2x4 @ 8 1/8”
6 - 2x6 @ 34 1/4” (both ends beveled at 45 degrees, long point to long point, ends NOT parallel)
12 - 2x8 @ 7 1/4” (cut out in arch shape)
3 - 2x6 @ 36” (both ends beveled at 30 degrees off square, long point to long point, ends NOT parallel)
3 - 2x6 @ 36 1/2”
6 - 1x3 @ 5 1/2” (OR 1x6 @ 2 1/2”)
1 - 2x6 @ 90 1/2”

TABLETOP
12 - 1x6 @ 47 3/4”
2 - 2x4 @ 106”
3 - 2x4 @ 33”
2 - 1x2 @ 102 1/2”
2 - 1x2 @ 39 1/2”
2 - 2x2 @ 103”
2 - 2x2 @ 40”

Step 1: 

You'll need to make three of these. If you have a nailer, that will be the best way to go. Keep outside edges flush and use glue. TIP: Make sure your stretcher board fits in the middle opening.

Step 2 Instructions: 

Next add the top and bottom.

Step 3 Instructions: 

Now add the decorative pieces. You'll cut these with a jigsaw and sand smooth first before attaching.

Step 4 Instructions: 

And then the base board.

Step 5 Instructions: 

Now add the top board.

Step 6 Instructions: 

Adding feet will make your table sit on the six little feet - very handy if you have uneven floors. Then you can just shim the one foot not cooperating.

Step 7 Instructions: 

Now it gets fun! Put the stretcher in place.

Step 8 Instructions: 

And now let's move on to the table top. I highly recommend a Kreg Jig here.

Step 9 Instructions: 

And the decorative aprons. Don't forget the glue here.

Step 10 Instructions: 

Add the finishing touches here. Use glue and screws or nails. Predrill to avoid wood splitting.

Step 11: 

Now we can add the base!

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

Wow - I love the feel of the original farmhouse table, but didn't like the legs as they seemed to be in the way - this is the perfect fix and so beautiful. I don't even have a first build under my belt yet, but I will definitely put this down on the list as one to tackle after a little experience!

This is so beautiful! I really love it! Great job Ashley, and Ana you are truly inspired and talented, and I know you hear that a lot, but it is so true. As I have said before, I LOVE to build, because of your awesome plans! Thanks again!

Wow I love this table!!!!!!!! Really wondering how it was only 125.00???

I'm wondering if the wood is just regular pine or if it is something a little more expensive. I think most of our 2x4s here are of pine.

This is exactly what I've been looking for!!! I would like to have the option of having a chair on the ends. Would there be any reason (lack of stability, etc) if I moved the legs in another 10" or so?

I Love it! would it be possible to make it shorter? Only two legs instead of three? I would love to make it for my kitchen table and 106" is too long.

I would love to find some similar design chairs to match this table. Do you have or know of any plans for chairs.

Do you know of or have any plans for matching chairs for this table? I can't wait to build the table but don't want to start until I can find plans for matching chairs.

I was just on the World Market site checking out the table, and happened to see some of the comments there. Someone was asking if there were matching chairs for the table and the rep answered that it was meant for mix-and-match table and chairs, so no matching chairs are available from World Market! But that's not to say that Ana won't come out with something amazing that matches :)

I love this plan also!! And who can beat the price tag??!! I'm seriously thinking about building this one (I've considered building almost all of Ana's plans when they come out, lol!). I would need to shorten it AND would want seating on the ends. After looking at the plans, I don't think either one would affect the structural integrity of the table for the people who were questioning that. Two legs will support this table just fine--especially with it shortened. And since the legs fully support the table top across its width, it shouldn't matter if you move them in a bit for seating on the end.

I have been looking at farmhouse tables plans because I am on a tight budget and this is the one! Absolutley exquisite. I was wondering about chairs at the end because I want to reupholster some wingback chairs to put at the ends. Will it mess up the stability or layout of the table to move the end legs in to allow for chairs? Again, I am in awe and this is definitely the table of my dreams.

I also am wondering about making the table shorter to fit my kitchen. We would need a six-foot table instead of nine. And also a bench on one side, if you have plans for that? Thanks!

I LOVE this table! I finally talked my husband into building some things for the house and he agreed to tackle our first project together. Since our kids destroyed our table, that's the first on our list. I'm just wondering which tools are absolutely necessary and which are just for convenience/ease. I'm on a budget right now :/ but I MUST do this, it's fantastic and would fit right into my plans :)

It's all fun and games until someone loses their stitch count.

That doesn't sound like a bad idea. It never really crosses my mind, but it's definitely an option. Thanks!

It's all fun and games until someone loses their stitch count.

I really hope that bench plans for the farmhouse table are being created. This table is awesome!

i'm also hoping there is a bench in the future and then I'll add some chairs to the other side... also will be making it shorter and bringing in the legs for seating on the ends.

i've been asking/begging my husband to build us a table as my christmas present... and just showed him this one and he likes it better than the another one that we were going to build. so excited!!! maybe we'll get this done early in the new year ;)

Great job on the table. How exactly did you cut the ornamental arc's that you used? Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm considering making this table and though many are speaking of shortening it, I need to lengthen it for our large family. I'm wondering how much longer it would need to be it we were to add seating on the ends, keeping the existing base measurements, but just lengthening the top?

This table already has almost 8" of overhang before the legs. You will find that you will could use it as is, and if you want to add some length just a few inches to each end will be more than enough for seating. If you want to slide the chairs in all the way that is a different story.

I bought lumber for this table today, and I am so excited! 12 weeks until the baby comes, so we'll see how much I can get built with the bump in my way :)

Now I'm looking at the cut list again and wondering how in the world I'm supposed to get:
3 - 2x6 @ 36 1/2”,
3 - 2x6 @ 36” (both ends beveled at 30 degrees off square, long point to long point, ends NOT parallel)
AND
6 - 2x6 @ 34 1/4” (both ends beveled at 45 degrees, long point to long point, ends NOT parallel)
out of 3 - 2x6 @ 10 ft boards. Am I missing something? That looks like it would take 4 of the 2x6x10 boards. The other 2x6 board in the shopping list seems to be just long enough for the stringer and nothing else.

Is there any way to adjust the plans to add extensions to the ends?

I love this table and bench! I was wondering, though, could there be chairs to match coming? :)
I love the look of a long table with a bench on one side and chairs on the other and at the heads. Also, chairs are easier for grandparents and attaching highchairs too :)
Thank you so much for all your hard work and thank you to everyone else who helps Ana come up with/build all these wonderful plans!

It's perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I've read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read even more things about it!graminées

I am almost finished with my table, YAY!!! This was such an easy build, thank you so much for the free plans!!
I want to add that we did have to add 2-2x6x8 to the material list, I don't think it listed all that we needed.
Also, now that I am to the tabletop, I cannot figure out how to attach the 1x6's to the frame, without attaching the boards to the underneath sides?? Any help?

I love this pedestal table even more than the farm house table. I get an error when trying to connect to the pdf. Can you check the link? We will be moving to a new house in about a month and would love to make this our newest piece of furniture!

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for the great article I did enjoyed reading it, Thanks for sharing this great article! That is very interesting Smile I love reading and I am always searching for informative information like this. bad credit loan

Hi Anna!
My boyfriend and I are wanting to build this table for our new home, with a large formal dining room, and we went out and bought all the tools we will need (we hope to use them for lots of projects now!) but we are having a really hard time finding lumber without breaking the bank :/
We live in Arizona and the lowest estimate we've come up with is 350 dollars of wood. My boyfriend told me to ask if you used "construction grade" or "furniture grade" lumber? I assumed the materials were just pine 2 x 4's but I could be wrong.

I appreciate any help anyone can give me! Thank you!!

Hi everyone,
I'm in the planning stages of my project. I was wondering how your tabletops are holding up?
I'm thinking of using hardwood for the tabletop, and modifying some of the dimensions to better fit my situation.
Any comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

Triple Pedestal Farmhouse Table its looking very hard and good assets for home. I thing its also provide a good looking to our home.... we want to use Table which is take very less space to our home, and this is one of these...

We are currently looking at buying a home and this will be my first project once we get settled! I have always wanted a table I can entertain large groups with, that is still stylish and I have found it here. Thanks for posting! I was wondering though, I want to add a single person bench to each end so it will fit 12 people, do you have any tips on making that happen? Obviously I would like them to match the table and the long benches. Thanks. :)

Thanks!!!

I am getting so frustrated, because I want to see the finished product, but cant figure out how to attach the 1x6s to the frame! Can anyone help? The pocket holes are too high up on the frame to attach to the low 1x6s. I didn't want to have to buy more wood to add the extra boards, but I don't know how else to attach them like the plan. Please help!
