I spent a lot of time looking at photos that my wife tagged on pinterest, most from builders who frequent Ana's site. I learned a lot just from looking.
I stole particular ideas from Ana, Tommie and Ellie, and another site that I can't find right now, but they really did the trestle / farmhouse hybrid idea first and I just modified their idea a bit. If anyone has seen their site, please remind me so I can give credit where it is due!
I didn't really use a plan other than having a general idea of what I wanted the size of the table to be. I believe it came out to about 102" x 44"
I built 6 chairs and the bench.
All is built out of construction grade lumber, and gets lots of compliments.
The table came together in a solid weekend, the bench took a couple of evenings, and the chairs...those chairs took forever to cut out, shape, assemble, and finish.

Truly an inspiration for when we are to the point of building our table. Thank you for sharing.
