My husband and I wanted a pretty huge farmhouse table for our actual farmhouse! ;D So we built this table our of solid maple. The Husky table legs we ordered in "hard maple" from Osborne. This table is 42" x 107.5". We affixed the long planks with pocket hole screws, and glued them together. The 2in breadboards were attached with glue and bisquit joints. And the legs were attached using pocket holes.
I was not totally pleased with the durability of the wax so sanded down and put on a water based (non yellowing) matte finish.
