About This Project

After searching retail stores for farmhouse tables and not liking the pricetags, my wife talked me into tackling this plan. (I'm glad she did) This is my finished product.

I made the breadboards extendable so we could add extra boards if we needed additional seats for guests.

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used: 
Minwax Polyshades American Chestnut Satin 2 coats Minwax Clear Satin Fast Drying Polyurethane Legs are painted in a color called "Dark as Night"
Estimated Cost: 


Could you tell me how you made the breadboards extendable??

I basically notched out the end apron so that 2x2's could slide through, then attached the 2x2's to the breadboard. I originally attached them so they were just under the edge of the breadboard, but have since changed it so that it goes about halfway. I hope you understand what I am trying to say, if not I can add some more pictures.

This is so beautiful.. Exactly what I want could you please add more pictures of how you made the extensions.
