This is a large Dining room table in a farmhouse style. The table is 97 inches long by 44 1/2 inches wide. The table seats 8 people very comfortably. The construction was done with all wood purchased from Home Depot. The wood is 2x6 and 2x4 construction. The wood was kiln dried wood. The challenges I had with the project were space to assemble the table as it is just over 8ft long and just under 4ft wide. assembly of the boards with glue was a challenge due to the glue dripping and keeping the glue from filling in the natural bevel of the joints. The table was assembled upside down. The table was much heavier then expected and required three people to carry into the house. The stain is espresso color stain with a Poly Urethane.

  • Beautiful work! This table is going to last forever. You really did a great job- and the stain color is perfect. Did you follow a prepared plan?

    • Thank you for the kind words. As far as following a plan yes and no. I found a picture similar on the internet but had to customize the table for the desired size of the room. I also took a guess/stab at how far apart the legs needed to be in order to properly secure the table top. The Top probably weighs close to 250+ pounds. The legs and supports for the legs were something I tried to create the illusion of a X design on the legs. This was done with 2x4's cut at an angle. The legs were all assembled in one piece and the table top was another. We assembled the base to the top once it was inside the house.
