Super Big Farmhouse Dining Table and Bench

I worked on both the kitchen table, the dining table as well as the bench seat and all eight parson chairs together, so it took over a week to make this. I think if you were just doing the table you would be looking at a weekend project. Go hard or go home, unless you are home...

The kitchen table was just a case of shortening Ana's plan to about four feet. I made a quick and dirty table leaf to attach the two tables. For more info see my blog. There is also info on making those Parsons chairs too.

Very nice! What kind of wood is that and would you mind sharing the stain color?

Love the idea and plan on borrowing it, but we were just curious how do you make the leaf that connects them?

 

Another question, when you made the breakfast table, did you cut the table top pieces to 48" or did you cut them 36" and made the whole table 4 ft with the end pieces added?  Also, for the breakfast table, would it seat 6 people comfortably?  Thanks and what a wonderful job!
