    • Nice looking project. I need to build a 7 foot table. Like to get ideas.
      By JohnP513, on May 7, 2016
      • Thank you. I used ana-white's fancy X table plans for the base and 1x8 planks for the top I just framed them out and mitered the edges to give it a more polished look. Great for large families! All 6 of us fit with room to spare!

    • Do you have any instructions on how to build?

      • I used Ana-whites Fancy X building plans on her website for the base and I used the restoration hardware table top plans from although I altered them some I mitered the corners so it looks more polished. Both of those websites are amazing and the ladies that come up with the build instructions are super detailed! Love these sites!

    • Beautiful! You picked the perfect design for the space. Nice job on that finish too- gorgeous!
      By RYOBI Nation, on April 17, 2017
      • Thanks you! The finish was a pain. First I stained it English chestnut by minwax and it was too red, so I white washed it and over did it so then I selectively stain Jacobean over the whitewash to tone it down. I am now happy with the finish, thanks.

    • We love it - the herringbone top and fun texture of the legs are a great combination! Awesome job, @Meagan24!  The use of trim reminded us of the Shanty 2 Chic "Treedition" project. Check it out -it might look great with your other projects.

      • Thank you! Yes I got the inspiration from shanty2chic. Those sisters are fantastic!!!
