Farmhouse Table

Submitted by SamWiseMan on Mon, 10/08/2012 - 17:23

I used a combination of the farmhouse table and the tryde coffee table (but on a larger scale). I don't have a Kreg drill or any of that and so I just screwed from the top side down. Since I knew the screws would show, I decided to take a platinum/shiny silver Sharpie to color over the screw heads to make them stand out.

The legs were a 2x4s glued and screwed together. Can't find any untreated 4x4 at the local Lowes or Home Depot, so this was my next best option.

I used a few coats of Rustoleum Dark Walnut and then Rustoleum Semi-Gloss poly.

I have since made a new bench with the same main design, but just to a small scale. Also, I did it opposite of the top. The table is 2x4 with 2x6 breadboard ends. The bench is 2x6 with 2x4 breadboard ends.

Where did you get the wood for the legs?

It is just regular whitewood 2x4s glued and screwed together. Then I just used wood filler to make it look llike a 4x4.
