When I saw Ana's plans for this table I had to build it. I did modify the size to make the table top a little wider and longer. The extra width is great for putting more food or a center piece in the middle of the table.
I thought the build was pretty simple and everyone who visits our house loves the table. It is definitely a conversational piece.
The table and benches are heavy duty and will be able to passed on for many generations. I love the rustic look and so the steel wool/vinegar stain was my finish of choice.
I decided to document the entire build and created the most in-depth farmhouse table video tutorial online. The goal with the video is to show how easy it is to build the table using Ana's plans!
