Farmhouse Table

Last year for Christmas my wife bought me a Ryobi miter saw with the caveat that I would make her a dining room table. Well challenge accepted! After about 11 months of planning I finally got to it. Our dining room isn’t that big and we wanted a table that could seat 8 but also be tucked into the corner when not in use. We decided on having a bench against each wall that could fit under the table when stored, and 4 chairs that were always out. The overall dimensions of the table ended up being 58.5” x 58.5” x 30”. The top is made up of 2”x6”s and 2”x8”s pine boards, the frame is of 2”x4”s, and the legs are 4”x4”s. I constructed the top using a biscuit joiner (newest addition to the Ryobi family) and a ton of pocket holes with the help of my trusty Kreg Jig! I mitered the 2”x8”s at 45° for the corners and joined them with 2 pocket holes. They came out amazing and was easier than I anticipated. For the legs, I used a jig from an earlier project to help set up my table saw. This makes a cut in the leg that you finish off with a hand saw. The notch is to allow a piece of 2”x4” to go across the corner to help make the table rigid. After I put it all together I sanded, stained and applied 2 layers of top coat. It came out way better than expected, and way heavier too! I had so much fun and learned a lot from making this table. Next up now are those benches, can’t wait!

Nice work. I like that you actually built this instead of creating something just out of pallets like most other people do. True craftsmanship and creativeness. Please don't let the jealous child who commented above get to you, jealousy is an ugly emotion.
