About This Project

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.

Estimated Cost: 
$80
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine - construction grade
Finish Used: 
Two layers of Minwax Antique Oak, followed by an Antique Oak/Dark Walnut mix. Followed by 3 coats of Minwax hand-rubbed polyurethane, then one coat of Minwax Dark Wax.

I like the changes you made!

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

Both Blue and Orange carry 4x4 pine boards. One 10' length will make all the legs.

This is exactly what I've been looking for!

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.

There are cross supports

There are cross supports under the table top, to help support the top and keep the base square. I made them out of 2x2s. Email me at redhenhome AT gmail DOT com if you have any other questions--I don't see these comments in a timely fashion!
