My First Project!

My husband and I just moved from an apartment to a house, the first place we've ever lived with a dining room! I knew I wanted to build a really special table for us and I LOVED this plan. It seemed straightforward enough, and my stepdad had all the tools in his workshop. So my stepdad, mom, and I built the table over the course of a weekend. It was SO fun and it looks perfect in our first little house!

Estimated Cost
It cost me about $100 to buy all the lumber, screws, turnbuckles and hardware, stain and polyurethane. I didn't have any of those things on hand before starting. If I had, it would have been less! I also didn't have to purchase any tools.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Wood was finished with Varathane Light Walnut wood stain and 4 coats (on the top) of Varathane Water-Based Polyurethane.
