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.
It's absolutely gorgeous. This is stunning. I'm incredibly jealous of this.
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
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.
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!
Absolutely stunning. Great job!
You posted you used 5x5's for the outside and legs. What did you use for the rest of the top?
