Farmhouse Table & Bench

We wanted a farmhouse dining table but didn't want to be confined by 4 corner legs or supports at the end of the table so I combined the farmhouse top from this site with another farmhouse table base that I found at shanty2chic through a link on this site.  We couldn't be happier with how it turned out!  I didn't follow any of the plans exactly but adjusted them so we had a table that fit well in our dining room, still fit several guests and was a good eating height.  The bench was also modified from the plans I found at shanty 2 chic.

Do you have the plans for the base of the table and the bench? I found the tabletop plans, but have gone to the shanty2chic website and can't find anything for the base, etc.

Here is a link to the plans I used for the table base: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2014/05/restoration-hardware-inspired-dini…

And for the bench: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2014/06/diy-benches-for-my-dining-table.ht…

I made some modifications to the table length/width to fit our dining room space better which is just a matter of preference. I then changed the length of the bench to fit our table. Other than those small changes which didn't effect the integrity of the plans, these are what I went by.

Thank you so much! This is exactly what we've been looking for. I love that the legs/base are completely under the table so not to interrupt or block causing wasted space.
