We are back with the next piece of our “Retail Spot Renovation” puzzle! Every retail space needs a welcome table but we wanted to build something that could also act as a dining table – for you guys 😉 So, we designed this DIY Pew Bench Farmhouse Table!
We love that it looks found, it only uses 8 boards AND it only cost us about $65 in lumber! Grab a cup of coffee and come build it with us!
DIY Pew Bench Farmhouse Table – The Free Plans!
So easy, so fun and so cute! You can follow along below in the how-to, as well!
The step-by-step tutorial!
To begin, I used my Ridgid table saw to rip all of the round edges off of the boards. You can refer to the plans for the exact width that I ripped them down to.
DIY Pew Bench Farmhouse Table – Kreg Jig
Once the boards were ripped, we used our Kreg Jig to drill 2 1/2″ pocket holes in all of the boards. Refer to the plans for pocket hole placement! You can find our favorite Kreg Jig model HERE on Amazon!
Our first step in assembly was to plank the table top. We used 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws to attach the table top planks.
Next, we assembled the side, leg bases. We used wood glue and and 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws.
DIY Pew Bench Farmhouse Table – Glue Bottle
We cut the trim pieces to size and applied wood glue to the inside of each piece (we LOVE this glue bottle and you can find it HERE on Amazon)!
and attached them to the leg bases with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws.
Once the bases were assembled, we attached the bases to the feet with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue.
Next, we attached the apron pieces to the bases with 2 1/1″ pocket hole screws and wood glue. Make sure the pocket holes are facing inside the table and up, so that they can be used to attach the planked top.
We centered the runner and attached it to the base with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue.
Once the base was assembled, it was time to attach the base to the planked top. We used 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and drilled from the bases and aprons into the table top.
The final step in assembly was to attach the “faux end pieces” of the runners to the outside of the bases. We used wood glue and 2″ finish nails, with our 16 gauge finish nailer, to attach! (you can also use an 18 gauge brad nailer here).
