Really Nice Table

You did a great job on this table. I built the farmhouse table and I think I may add the supports you added to the bottom of the legs and between the end legs. I am interested if you could detail how this table cost $150? I was guessing no more than $75 or maybe even less.

Thanks Jake! The reason it

Thanks Jake! The reason it cost $150 is primarily due to my location. I'm up in Anchorage, Alaska and the lumber I was finding at Home Depot and Lowes was either cracked or moldy since they seem to store their lumber outside in the snow until they need to restock the shelves inside. I went to a local lumber store and paid a little extra. Also, I spent $35 on the finish: pre-stain wood conditioner, rustoleum oil-based finish, rustoleum polyurethane. I bought a quart size can of each, but could have easily gotten away with half that. So, in reality it should have been a lot less. My lumber breakdown was as follows:
(4) 2x12x8' @$17 each
(2) 4x4x10' @$13 each
(5?) 2x4x8' @$4 each

We All Live with Cruddy Wood

Thanks for clearing up the cost issue. I usually just estimate how much of the paint or stain I really used. Cheaper to buy by the quart or gallon. Sometimes if the project is small I buy the sample paint for $2 or $3 but it only comes in flat, You are not alone with cruddy wood. Orange and Blue in south Texas is just as bad. Mostly bent and warped wood with lots of knots and bark. I tried a regular lumber yard yesterday for three boards and I was looked at like I wasn't there. I am old enough to remember when I could go to the lumber yard and actually buy 1/4" and 1/2" lumber. Must be cold up there.
