Credit for this project goes to Ana White, check out her site at

Made from construction grade 2×10’s, 4×4’s and 2×4’s. Spent an hour at Lowe’s digging through the lumber trying to find the straightest boards. The table isn’t perfectly square or flat, but that adds to the “rustic” look. Very sturdy and doesn’t wobble.

Used the Kreg jig HD for this project, works great if you want to use pocket holes on material > inch and a half. Kreg claims joints are 50% stronger than regular kreg pocket joints, I believe it.

Used Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut stain and Rust-Oleum satin polyurethane. This was my fist time using this brand, very happy with the results.

thanks for looking

Nice looking table. Those breadboard ends are sure wide, how did you attach them?

Nice job.

Looks great, proves you can do a lot without expensive lumber.

The fact that this amazing looking table is built from construction grade lumber is outstanding. My wife just saw the picture and said “Nice table! Are you going to make us one like that!” Great job!
