This was my first attempt at making a table. I used cheap lumber and finished it with a rustic look. It was very easy to make, but pretty heavy fully assembled.

so that is all dimensional pine lumber? Are those 2×10’s for the top? What did you use for the 4×4s?

I used all dimensional lumber. It was all made from Douglas Fir. 2×8’s for the top and 4 X’s for the legs.

did you have to do much planing/jointing of the material? Also, where did you get your lumber? They stuff I find at my local HD isnt worth burning for heat, let alone building something that looks this good!

Also, for the 4x legs, did you use pressure treated lumber? That is usually the only 4x material I can find.

Good looking table..construction and finish. Looks very sturdy and can certainly hold a lot of food :)

Matt, I did no planing or joining on this project. For the top, I just butted it all up together and used a pocket hole jig to complete. This way it gives it the rustic look. As for the lumber, everything was purchased at Lowes. It was all the cheap Douglas Fir lumber including the 4×4’s. Nothing was pressure treated, I didn’t really care for the green tint that pressure treating does to the wood.

Thank you all for the comments. RT31, I used 1 coat of Red Mahogany stain with 5 coats of clear satin poly on the table top.

You did a very nice job on this build. No one would ever guess dimensional lumber from Lowes.

Based on the “curtains” in pic 5, I assume you sprayed this project?
