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.

Estimated Cost: 
200
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
pine
Finish Used: 
Minwax special walnut and Minwax semi-gloss poly

GREAT job! I just built this

GREAT job! I just built this same table last weekend using what looks like the same plans (Tommy & Ellie?) and I had the same thought run through my mind about selling mine--even though it turned out great, I still wanted to improve on the minor things, like the tighter seams by ripping down the sides of the boards. I posted mine on CL to see what would happen and had it sold within 2 days at a $500 profit.

Yours turned out fantastic, I like the 4x4 lengthwise stretcher, that was a good call.

Love your table! Looks amazing! Where would I find the smaller table plans? I think that is what I would need.
