Fancy X Farmhouse Table

Submitted by Loaded918 on Sat, 03/14/2020 - 12:01

This is my first big project. It took about 5 days with the help of my 3 yr old little boy. I made a couple of modifications. I took the size down to 6 ft to fit our current dining room. Essentially I just took 24 inches off of the table top and the long cross braces. For the diagonal cross pieces, I just clamped the wood on the side and marked where the cut was needed. Somehow though, I ended up needing 8 2x4’s... It turned out a lot better than I expected. Although I wish it was explained how they attached the table top. I ended just screwing in from the top. Wish there was a way to avoid this, and the ensuing shown screws, but it will do for now!
