X Farmhouse Table

Submitted by Joshman010 on Sun, 10/30/2016 - 18:36

First piece of furinture I've tried to build, went surprisingly smooth. Raw table only took 5 hours to construct; an hour or two to sand; and then the waiting game after two coats of stain and 4 coats of poly. Used southern yellow pine for the top, dark walnut stain, and spar pro series semi-gloss poly.

How did you attach the top to the base?

There is only 1 support board.

I used the pocket hole jig to drill pocket hold along the center support that runs parallel to the top boards and also drilled pocket holes on the top supports of the legs that run perpendicular to the top boards. Alternating pocket holes on both inside and outside faces of the top support boards gives it some added strength.

btw, sorry for such a delayed response.
