Built myself this farmhouse table. It is 72×31” and is made of Ash. I used loose tenons and draw bore to hold it all together. I really do love this type of joint and how it pulls everything together. Stained it with Medium walnut danish oil. Used 1/2” threaded rod and 1/4” plate steel to hold the stretcher in and keep it tight together. Also easy to break down to move when required.

Here are some more pics of the process.

Very nicely done and sturdy enough to have an elephant stand on it too!

Massive is mandatory for a farm table. A lightweight that goes skittering across the floor is of no use around farm lads.

Wonderful pic post as well.

Awesome, beef, and brawn well done. Thanks for posting.

Exactly, excellent build though. Looks great and the idea to be able to break it down in a move is a back saver later.
