What type joinery will you be using? Pocket screws I hope not. and what style farm table.I have many plans of farm tables drawn in Autocad.

Thanks guys.
Bruce, I’m not sure of joinery, probably depends on plans. I would like the farm table to have extensions so we can use it in our dining room when we have guest. anything else you think of that the table should have or I should be aware of will be appreciated.

Herb, I was being nice. I’ve used the basic plan from her site to build a table, buffet and bench as a commission, and posted the result here on LJs.

Hi Elvin. All my table plans, used by me in my shop, use mortise and tenon joinery. What you’re wanting on the ends of your table are called company boards.

I’ll draw you a set of plans as to what you and your wife want. I need to know style, leg style. are you going to turn the legs or purchase them, width of the leg you want and the height of the table, length and size of the top, with or without a drawer in it.

Once I get that we can talk on the phone and work it all out if you wish to do so.

ana-white joinery?..I know two of her farm tables screwed together causing the husbands some issues with their wives because of it.

Didn’t use screws, but mortise and tenon joinery on all three pieces.

EDIT.

The OP’s original request was for plans. Those include specifics on joinery, but that wasn’t the question. I used the Ana White website, for example, to get general dimensions of a farmhouse table and for that it served me quite well. No apologies offered for doing so.

Hi guys, when you made your table top, did you use dowels, pocket screws, or both along with glue and clamps?
