This is my first furniture build! I modified the Farmhouse Table mainly by removing the stretcher, so that someone could sit comfortably at the ends of the table. I used all pocket-hole construction, so the top is one piece, made out of alternating 2x8s and 2x10s. Overall size of this table was 78" long x 40" wide, to comfortably accommodate 8 people.
I like the changes you made! Where did you find the 4"x4" legs, or did you build them yourself?
Both Blue and Orange carry 4x4 pine boards. One 10' length will make all the legs.
I love this table! You did a wonderful job! Can you explain a little more about your modifications? Did you add any other support when you took away the stretcher? I want to make a table just like yours. I need to get rid of the stretcher too so that I can seat people on the ends.
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
