This was my first project!!
This plan took me about three weeks start to finish working off and on (multiple hours on weekend days). I widened the table to 48 inches (the dimensions for my table are approx 84" long x 48" wide. Used 4-2x10s and 1-2x12 for the table top and 1x8s for the bread board ends.

Estimated Cost
$100-$150 (I didn't have any of the items on hand or scrap) includes stains/paint/urethane, PH screws etc.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine
Finish Used
Stained with two coats of Minwax Early American and then one coat of Minwax English Chestnut (tried to match another furniture piece) coated top with 3 coats of Minwax Pro Spar Urethane in satin. The base is made with 4x4s for the legs and then 2x4s for the aprons and stretchers. Painted in Valspar Satin "Wet Pavement", 2 coats and clear coated with the satin Pro Spar Urethane, 3 coats.
