I built this farm style table this week. Everything was ripped out of left over 2×10 Lowes Top Choice lumber from a remodel last year. The last picture shows why I built it. This is for our laundry room on site and hopefully will last longer than the table I replaced. All the top pieces are 8” wide with a total surface area of 32” x 72”. The legs are 5” wide and all the stretchers are 4” tall. Total hieght is 30”. No stain. The finish is 3 coats of sprayed Minwax Oil Modified Water Based Poly. It turned out good but I’d still rank Polycrylic above this product. It yellowed more than I had hoped it would. All joinery is with pocket hole screws and Tightbond III. This is the first piece I flattened with a decent plane instead of a belt sander :)
