This was my first shot a farmhouse table. It was pretty easy to make overall. Frame and tabletop were put together mostly with dowels and wood glue but I put a few pocket screws and corner braces in for extra support. I also added a decorative trim board to the sides, which I put on the face of 2x3s. The tabletop is four 2x10s and two 2x6s for the ends. The stain is a dark Expresso color and I coated with polyurethane. The legs were bought from Lowes at a reasonable price since I lack the tooling and know-how for a lathe.
The benches were exactly the same except I used two 2x6s for the tops.
