Farmhouse table with matching bench and rooster centerpiece

Submitted by Ctarbell03 on Sat, 07/20/2013 - 14:23

Saw this table after a few people did it themselves and absolutely loved the look. I decided on using the 4x4's for the stretchers because I really liked the heavy timber look it gave to the table. This is my biggest project so far and I'm very excited how it turned out. Now I just have to make the other bench to finish it all off.

Also have to give credit to… - Definitely amazing step by step plans on here, I just modified it a little to add a little more space on the table top by adding another 1x8 in the middle

After I got the table done I saw the plans for the reclaimed soda crate caddy so I used some scrap wood to make a rooster centerpiece for napkins and silverware.

All in all I'm very happy with everything.

Estimated Cost
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine for most, the 4x4s are douglas fir (the only thing I could find untreated)
Finish Used
Red mahogany stain and a couple coats of poly to give it a little shine

Nice work!! How did you get your joints on the table top to line up so perfectly?! It looks great.
