Short Farmhouse Table

Submitted by Mamasra on Wed, 06/29/2011 - 11:36

This is a shorter and more narrow version of the Farmhouse table, it works perfectly for 2 kids to sit and do homeowrk or color at.
Most of teh legs are built out of reclaimed pallet wood, driving the cost way down, I did not include the stain and wax into my total cost since I had these on hand.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$35.00
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
I stained the top and did 3 clear coats on the top.
The legs I painted white, distressed with a sander and did a Trewax mahogany finish.
Recommended Skill Level
Beginner

Hi, I am building a table for a teacher who wants it to be a 3 seater. Your table looks just right. I am wondering how stable it is. It looks like you didn't taper the legs, which is what I think I am going to do too. Basically I need to know if you feel it is stable enough for a teacher to use as a writing center.
Thanks, Alecia
