New Farmhouse Kitchen Table

Submitted by tbladecki on Mon, 11/23/2015 - 09:21

This is 84" long and 41" wide. I built this to fit our family. We are a family of 7 and our old table was just too small. It would not hold the food or all the people, so we came up with this. It has plenty of room and there is no more buffet style eating.

 

The build was pretty easy, the finishing took some time. All in all happy with the results. Looking forward to building the bench and chairs. This entire build is made from constuction grade pine off the shelf at the big orange box store.

 

Cost was under $100 for just the wood but the finishing items I did not ahve so I had to purchase. The finsih was a 80/20 mix of gloss minwax poly and miniral spirts. It worked very well and I am very happy with the outcome. I did learn a few things along the way, 1) off the shelf cheap lumber is not very stable and 2) this thing is HEAVY
