I built this table for my wife as a surprise 50th birthday present.  She had been wanting me to build her a farmhouse table and I loved this design.  I allowed her to pick out the colors of stain/paint that she wanted for the finish after she unwrapped it.  I actually went into sketchup and designed my own table, based on these plans, to fit into our smaller dining space. By designing it, I was also able to modify it to fit our chairs.  The top is Oak with a red mohagany stain.  The legs and aprons are pine and chalk painted in drop cloth...her favorite paint and color.  

Great table.  I already have people asking me to build them one.
