Modern lines meet farmhouse size with our Fancy "V" Farmhouse Table. In under an hour, you can create a piece that brings family and friends together!

NOTE*: I used my table saw to rip all of the boards to 5” wide. This is not a necessary step but it will create a smooth, planked table top and give a more modern look to the piece. If you choose not to rip your boards, modify the measurements accordingly.

  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large 0104b623 146e 43c5 8cf9 0316448f7776

      Cut the plank pieces and drill 1 1/2” pocket holes into both ends of all planks and one side of 6 of the planks. Attach them together with 2 1/2” pocket hole screws.

    2. Step: 2

      Large 7ac39492 5c4a 4ddd 9ca1 2ec95c9f1e4b

      Measure and cut the breadboard pieces to size and attach them to the planked top, with 2 1/2” pocket hole screws, through the pocket holes drilled on the end of the planks.

    3. Step: 3

      Large ed2a347f 6f2a 4570 8c94 327d1192c1f3

      Cut the legs and the top leg runner to size and drill 1 1/2” pocket holes at the top of each leg. The pocket holes should face inside, so they should be drilled on the long point side of the legs. Turn the runner so that the long side faces up and attach the legs to the runner with 2 1/2” pocket hole screws and wood glue. Build 2 leg assemblies.

    4. Step: 4

      Large 040470c2 1604 49d5 9191 a863d86c5431

      Cut the bottom leg runner to size and drill 1 1/2” pocket hole screws into both ends of the long side. Attach it to the inside of the legs, 4” from the bottom of the leg, with 2 1/2” pocket hole screws and wood glue. Do this for both leg assemblies.

    5. Step: 5

      Large a6e96e81 0f57 4b41 b3dd e7e6fe549104

      Cut the decorative, “V” pieces to size. The best way to get a perfect fit is to mark center on the bottom runner, hold the 1x6 board up to the leg assembly and mark where the cuts should be. Then line your saw blade up to that mark and make your cut.

    6. Step: 6

      Large 01b7eb4a 76c9 4ca9 899f 65f8a4203ac1

      Use your 18-Volt Pin Nailer to attach the long corner to the top, inside corner of the leg assembly and attach the other long point to the center of the bottom leg runner. Use 1” pin nails and wood glue. Do this for both leg assemblies.

    7. Step: 7

      Large cc267e98 0443 431b 8b01 241a454a4add

      Flip the leg assemblies right-side-up and cut the stretchers to size. Attach them to the top of the leg assemblies with 2 1/2” wood screws, from the top of the stretchers and into the leg assemblies. The stretchers should extend 4 3/4” over the leg assemblies.

    8. Step: 8

      Large c7cdfb88 95fd 49d8 8352 f222ee2e3010

      Flip the planked top and leg base upside down. Center the base on top of the planked top. Attach the base to the top with 2 1/2” wood screws, through the stretchers and into the bottom of the tabletop.

    9. Step: 9

      Large cd3b5024 d9e4 4983 b510 51b5ef4b9728

      Now, just fill your pocket holes, give the table a good sanding and apply a finish! We added decorative nail heads to the legs but you can get creative and make it your own!
