We wanted to build a simple table for our kitchen that seated 8 and that could be ‘beautified’ by the hard use of our 3 kids. After reviewing several plans online, I decided to mix a few of my favorite ideas together and build my own.
I wouldn’t say that I set out to build a table for less than $100. The idea was to make a fame that we could eventually upgrade the table top on, or be re-finished to change the look we were going for. This was the result.
3 – 1×4x8
4 – 1×1x8 (These can be purchased, but I just ripped down some 2×4s I already had)
6 – 2×4x8
2 – 4×4x8 (I purchased treated 4×4s cause my intention was to paint them. This also keeps cost down)
2 – 1×4x78 1/2 (side aprons)
2 – 1×4x40 (end aprons)
7 – 1×1x38 1/2 (inside supports)
6 – 2×8x7 (table top)
4 – 4×4x29 1/4 (table legs)
Base has been painted a matte white.
Here is a sample piece of what the top stain will look like
