Free plans to build your own industrial farmhouse table. This plan is similar in design to our original Benchwright Industrial Farmhouse table, but this plan uses solid 4x4 legs, and a simplified tabletop design.
Bench plans not available yet - I will create plans if there is an interest.
- 7 - 1x6 @ 6 feet long (rip down to 5-1/4" width, both edges are ripped square)
- 1 - 1x8 @ 8 feet long
- 3 - 1x4 @ 8 feet long (rip down to 2-3/4" width, one edge is still rounded) OR use select pine 1x3s with square edges
- 2 - 2x3 @ 8 feet long or stud length
- 1 - 2x4 @ 8 feet long or stud length
- 72" overall of iron pipe (can use unions or turnbuckles) with end nuts
- 100 - 1-1/4" pocket hole screws
- 25 - 2-1/2" pocket hole screws
- 20 - 2" self tapping cabinet screws
- wood glue
- 7 - 1x6 @ 72" - rip both edges down to 5-1/4" wide
- 2 - 1x8 @ 36-3/4" *
- 2 - 1x4 ripped top edge down to 2-3/4" width (or use select pine in 1x3 width with square edges) @ 86" *
- 2 - 1x4 ripped top edge down to 2-3/4" width (or use select pine in 1x3 width with square edges) @ 35-1/4" *
- 4 - 4x4 @ 29-3/4" - long point to short point, both ends cut at 10 degrees off square, ends are parallel
- 2 - 2x3 @ 28-1/4" *
- 2 - 2x4 @ 28-1/4" *
- 2 - 2x3 @ 60" - long point to long point measurement, both ends cut at 10 degrees off square, ends NOT parallel
To create a perfect tabletop, a tablesaw is needed for this plan.
Rip rounded edges off of the 1x6s with a final width of 5-1/4".
Drill 3/4" pocket holes every 8" along long edge of all but one of the 1x6 boards.
Glue, clamp and attach, 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Cut ends square so final tabletop length is 71-1/2".
NOTE: If you are adjusting the overall length of the table, the tabletop boards should equal the length of your pipe.
Rip 1x4s down to 2-3/4" width (one edge should be cut square, bottom edge can be rounded).
Drill 3/4" pocket holes facing upward along one edge, every 8".
Attach to underside of the tabletop with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws and wood glue.
For the false cuts, you can use a square to score the wood with a razor knife or chisel or use a circular saw with the blade set to about 1/8" deep.
*If using select pine or other wood with square edges, you can use 1x3s here and not rip
Set miter saw to 10 degree angle cut off square.
Cut the legs, ends are parallel, 29-3/4" short point to long point measurement.
Cut the 2x3 and 2x4 end aprons and stretcher pieces so that the legs and 2x3 apron fit inside the tabletop. Dryfit.
Set Kreg Jig to 1-1/2" material.
Drill 1-1/2" pocket holes, two per end, on the 2x3 and 2x4s.
Attach as shown in diagram to the 4x4 legs with 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.
It worked best for me to attach both to one leg first, then flip and attach both to the other leg, using gravity to help me.
