Farmhouse Dining Table

My wonderful husband built this for our rather large family. He made it long enough to sit 4 comfortably along each side with one on each end (total of 10) but we can squeeze up to 14 if needed. Per my request, he omitted the cross bar at foot level since I didn't like how it looked. We also used 4x4s for the legs instead of 2x4s. It was a little trickier to get the cut just right, but we managed ;) Start to finish, this table was completed in 3 days with a lot of hard work. We still need to figure out some kind of finish since stuff tends to get stuck in the cracks between the boards. Just haven't had time to work on it. All in all, VERY happy with the results. Now time for some matching benches and chairs!
