Project (URL):

Time to Complete: 30 – 40 hours

Total Cost: $240

Finishing Details:
Classic farmhouse table top with breadboards combined with a more detailed base that allows for squeezing more family and friends around the table! We were going for inexpensive and somewhat distressed so we used knotty pine – stained the top with Minwax Special Walnut and finished with Minwax Satin Polyurethane. Base is stained with a dark walnut and then painted with a semi-gloss white that we then distressed for the look we wanted.

    Will this get watermarks if a coaster/placemat isn’t used?

    How were the plans modified from the original set? Are the lengthwise boards 6 ft instead of 8 ft in length? I’m curious, we have been discussing modifying a set of plans in just this same manner. Thanks!!
