Rustic table with large rustic X bench

Our old kitchen table was a bargain buy from a nearby outlet store and while I hate to say it...you get what you pay for. This was my second project ever so I was pretty nervous about building a table. My first project was storage daybeds for my girls. They were a lot more forgiving than a table. This project took me approximately 2 weeks of working off and on but only because I'm a bit of a perfectionist and finishing it drove nuts. But it's finished and I am in love! The plans for the rustic table were modified to make a shorter version to fit out kitchen. The bench plans were kept the same but the pesky cross supports were omitted due to lack of functionality and difficulty of cutting angles. End length on tabletop is 6ft. That's the perfect size for the bench to fit under.
