About This Project

My wife loved the Benchwright table at pottery barn, and I did not love the price. Got a lot of ideas from this site and tried to make it my own. The outside and legs are made from 5"x5" Cypress, purchased from a local saw mill. I used a kreg jig on the entire thing along with lag bolts and glue. It is very heavy and I can jump up and down on it. Bought the hardware from Fastenal. Fun project, took about 16 hours total.

$400
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Advanced

I'm in love.

It's absolutely gorgeous. This is stunning. I'm incredibly jealous of this.

Holy Amazing!

This is by far my favorite table I've seen on here. Wow...its all I can say. I wish it was not in the $400 range.

BTW, that is some serious saw dust. haha

Cost

Thank you,
I helped a buddy make on shortly after I made mine. He used 4x4 pine, it looks a little smaller and the pine did not stain as dark, but it is still a very nice looking table. He made it for under $150, so that might be a good option.

Great option

That is a great option. Hopefully when its time for a table like this I can afford the 5X5's.

What a statement that table has!

Wood for the top

You posted you used 5x5's for the outside and legs. What did you use for the rest of the top?
