About This Project
This was my first project. This was a birthday gift for my wife. She wanted one of these farmhouse tables but the cost was a little much for what we needed. I ran across a blog that followed the plans here and it walked me through step by step. It really wasn't that difficult of a build, and I almost want to sell this one(to the many people that have asked about buying one) and building another to fix the minor mistakes I learned while building it.(maybe triming the top so I would have nice tight seams, glue visible between boards, etc..) I started with the bench being this was my first project and first time using the kreg jig. The wife loved it. So much in fact that I took the scrap wood and made a coffee table and end tables for living room that matched. I did change the runner under the table and used another 4x4 instead of the 2x4. I like the beefier look with all the other 4x4 used for the legs. I also used the smaller table plans for the 72x41 plans as we didn't have room before building the larger one. With the extensions, we have comfortable seated 12.
