Turned leg farmhouse table by Craig Martinson

Turned leg farmhouse table from Ana White's plans. The legs are from Osborne Wood and lumber is from a big box store.

It took 2.5 hours to build, including cuts and drilling pocket holes with a friend's help. It took about 30 minutes to stain plus time to wait for the stain to set before wiping it down. I list this as a weekend project because of the time it takes to cure the stain (1 coat) and for each coat (3, total) of the acrylic to dry.

Type of Wood
I used a red oak for the top, no. 2 pine for the apron, and knotty pine for the legs.

I finished the table with Minwax Dark Walnut stain (it photographed redder than it is in actuality--it's a nice warm brown) and 3 coats of Minwax Polycrylic.
