Ana White Inspired Farmhouse Table - "The Gathering Place"

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 10/27/2019 - 11:54

This my first-ever custom, DIY farmhouse dining table that I built for my amazing in-laws! They just moved into a beautiful new home with a large, open dining area, and they've been looking for a large table that our growing family can gather around. This table seats up to 12 people at one time, and it 2.5' tall, 3.4' wide, and 10' long (with the extensions out.)

I've repurposed many tables and/or wood projects before, but this is my first table made completely from scratch. It took me approximately 2 weeks to fully complete, and cost less than $300, (including "investment tools" such as large wood clamps, electric sander, etc.)

Estimated Cost
300
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
2" x 10" Prime Douglas Fir (for the table top), 2"x4" Prime Douglas Fir (for the support sections), and 4" x 4" Premium Ceder (for the legs).
Finish Used
I used an Espresso-color stain for the coloring of the table, and a water-based satin ____ sealer to protect the wood while giving it as natural a feel as possible. (I chose water-base so that the sealer would be clear and not affect the Espresso color.)
