Farmhouse Table

Submitted by sarah1122 on Mon, 02/25/2013 - 18:33

This was our second project from Ana's site. There were some bumps in the road (oh, the perils of getting warped 2 by 8 boards to line up perfectly side by side with the Kreg jig). All in all, this table isn't perfect, but it is ours and we love it.

The size of the table in the plans is quite perfect, I'd say. It is long, but fairly narrow. We can sit across from each other as a family of four and still feel cozy, but the table will seat ten if need be.

It is also very, very sturdy....which as a mother to two young boys I appreciate.

This was a 10-20 hour project for us, but we had two children under the age of 5 "helping" and are new to building furniture. I'm certain someone else could build the entire table in an afternoon.

Estimated Cost
$125.00 (not really sure)
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Kiln Dried Pine
Finish Used
One heavy coat of Minwax Gunstock (frightfully orangey on its own). Two lighter coats of Cabot Early American (thank heavens I had some of this laying around in the shop). Two coats Polycrylic semi-gloss on the base and three on the table surface.
