This was my first real build. I did some small furniture pieces for my grand-daughters to get my foot wet. I used the farmhouse table plans but mostly built by memory, which caused me to do it differently. Our Lowes don't carry 4x4's that's untreated so I glued two tx4's to get the legs. I still like the outcome. This build was during the spring of this year and it's still holding up. I didn't have a kreg jig so I used glue and brackets. I've learned so much since building and still learning. I used a water based stain and finish because I was concerned about the spill my grands would make. I'm planning on doing my dining table differently (using my mini kreg).
