Built this Farm Table because I wanted to. How about that? Now I have to find a home for it.
It’s 34” X 86” X 30” with an Oak top with pine legs and poplar skirt. The oak is beautiful and wormy! Breadboard ends. Seats 8. Got to use all my tools and jigs on this one: table saw, radial arm saw, band saw, lathe, jointer, hollow-chisel mortiser, routers, belt sander, palm sander, loose tenon jig and corner removing jig.
The skirt was mortised into the legs and I used pocket screws to attached the top to the skirt being mindful to enlarge the holes in the skirt to allow for movement.
I used Old Masters Wiping Stain with 4 coats of wipe-on poly, and homemade chalk paint. I found the paint at my local Lowes in the ‘miss-mixed’ group for $2.50 for a quart regularly $17.50 per quart.
Thanks for looking.
