I liked the last farm table I built so much that I decided to build one for myself. Total Cost $58.27 + 10 hours labor. Solid construction grade pine. Amber shellac stain with 5 coats of Polycrylic. 70” x 32” surface area and 29.5” high. Legs are laminated 3.25” x 3.25”. I was in a hurry to finish for the night when I joined the top. As you can see from pic #2 I did quite a crappy job. Trying to rush for a half hour cost me 2 hours worth of elbow grease with the plane. Every joint is with pocket hole screws. Very pleased with the results. Last pic shows what it replaced (already have plans to 100% recycle the old table in 2 projects…stay tuned)

Good build. Hurrying rarely works.

You and I are on the same wave with the pine. I just love the look on people’s face when they see what can be done with “rough lumber.”

Awesome table! I’m about to start a farmhouse table project of my own. Would you mind posting pictures of the underside? It would really help me plan the design of my table.

Very nice looking table !
Are the breadboard ends also pocket screwed in place ?
What do you mean by “construction grade Pine” ? Are you talking about framing lumber such as 2×4’s ?
thanks : )

Funny you mention this Dusty. I got the notification to your comment while attaching the breadboard end to Farm Table #3 today in the shop. I just snapped a picture real quick. Yes the breadboard ends are also pocket screwed in place with Tightbond II. Typically all my projects come in the shop as 2×10x12s from Lowes or a local building supply store. Just depends on how many knots I’m after.

Thank you for the kind words :)
