About This Project

Pine - construction grade

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.

Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
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.
Estimated Cost: 
$80

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 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!
