My wife came to me with a ad for a table and told me it would look great in our kitchen. I agreed it would except we can't spend 900+ on a table. Then I offered to build her a table without EVER having done this before.
Though this website I came across the easy to follow Farmhouse Table plans that for me took a lot of the guesswork out of this project. The material list that comes with every plan here was a huge help. In the end I think we ended up with a great table that will last for years to come.
There is a great feeling of accomplishment sitting down at a table you built with your own two hands. My wife hopes this will become my new hobby as she is searching the site for project #2.
Trust me when I say if I can do it anyone can.
