This is a farm table made on commission. The top is made of Mahogany and the base frame is made of maple. The joinery is 100% pocket hole and titebond3. The customer insisted on staining the top which i wasnt fond of but whatever the customer wants right! Thanks for looking.

thank you! Thank you! I just got on to research because my friend just asked for a farm table and i was debating the legs/ framework. That is beautiful!! this will be a lot more rustic!How long is this table? Do you think the base structure you used will work for an 8 foot ?

Beautiful table. Be thankful they wanted stain instead of paint. I like natural wood. Pains me to see it covered. How long is the table?

D1st,

I like you project so much I signed up for an account so I could ask you this question: What are the proportions. Are those 5×5 legs? What is the table size? I think you got the scale on this just right.

Thanks all. : ) The base is made of 8/4 maple. The legs are true 6×6 – three 8/4 boards glued together. The table itself is 10 feet long by 4ft 2in. I have use this same frame structure for an even bigger table and recently just used it on my own coffee table, which is 4ft x 2ft 4 in x 17 same 2x material. This was a fun make as are most woodworking projects- right! Thanks again its nice to have your peers appreciate your work.

Very nice. Never seen a middle leg like that. Did you come up with that design?
