Benchright Farmhouse Table

Submitted by Bergenj123 on Mon, 09/10/2012 - 16:41

A lot of hard work went into this table, but Im so happy with the result. I followed Ana whites plans closely and read all the Blog comments to help out. I made the table one 1x6 board wider and 4 inches longer to fit my space better. I also used a turnbuckle and threaded pipe for the stretcher to make it look a little more like the Pottery Barn Table. I think it gives it more of an industrial look. I used a red mahogony stain and plenty of polyurethane finish. I still have to build the bench, and i'm looking forward to using the plans from this site.

Estimated Cost
200-300 dollars
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood

Finish Used
red mahogany stain and a satin polyurethane finish.
Recommended Skill Level

This looks amazing! And I thought making the farmhouse table notches were tough :)

Thanks, the chairs are from Cost Plus World Market. They are the verona chairs. Funny you should mention the bench...I'm building it today. I will post it when I'm done.

The turnbuckle I got from a place called tractor supply and I ordered the pipe from an online hardware company, only because one side is reverse thread and I couldn't find it at a local hardware store
