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

      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

      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

      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

      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

      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

      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

      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

      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

      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!

  • I like the rustic chevron wood wall. Is this in a personal house or someone’s studio?
