Counter-Height Dining Table

Submitted by eralben on Mon, 03/16/2015 - 09:38

This was my first DIY building project.  I wanted a counter-height table, so I searched websites looking for plans and eventually I found  I altered the plans a little and I added a farmhouse style table top.  I used 2x8s for the table top which makes the table very heavy.

We want to build a counter height table and include a bench but we were worried about it being balanced enough for kids. How have your kids handled the height of the benches?

The benches are solid and we haven't had any issues with them being wobbly or unstable. The height hasn't really been an issue for my kids either (they got used to it very quickly). I did build two stools with backs in case one of the kids had a problem, but they prefer to sit on the benches.
