After researching farmhouse tables I drew up this design. I used 2 inch maple for the top. I learned the hard way that staining maple is tedious and doesn’t guarantee a good finish. I used a wood dye and I loved the finish. The legs are simple pine that I painted black. I used three coats of poly for the finish.
