A commissioned project for my neighbor’s daughter. Her family is moving to a farm and hence the need for a Country Table. The build is inspired by http://www.ana-white.com/2012/06/plans/fancy-x-farmhouse-table .
The wood is yellow pine and is from some beautiful stock that was 2” x 12” x 96”. I turned 6 of those boards into this signature piece. In the process, my whole shop now smells great. The top slab is 1 7/16” x 44” x 84.” The frame parts were milled to 1 3/4” x 3 1/2” and cut to length. On the website, the cross braces are oriented towards the bottom runner. I reversed them here to keep them out of the way of the diners’ feet. If you look at the side view of the frame (third picture), I added a cross buck from the top of the leg assembly to the top runner on each end to prevent racking when the table is moved. The whole frame is solid as a rock. All parts sanded to 180 grit. Emily is going to finish the table herself; I can’t wait to see the finished project. Thanks for looking!!
