This is my (late) Christmas present from my boyfriend, based on the farmhouse table plans. He had no idea how to build a table, so I directed him to this site! The wood is 80+ years old, all reclaimed. The table top is white pine, and the legs are cypress. I hand picked the pieces I wanted from his old wood “collection”. I plan to put a light stain on it, and use a satin, water-impervious finish. I wanted it to look old, hence the reclaimed wood. I love tapered legs, so that was a must. He still has to countersink the screws he used on the apron (!) and plug them with white pine plugs. The table is 91” long, and 36” wide.

$0 - wood was reclaimed that we had on hand, and we had everything else we needed.
