Author Notes: At our last book signing in Anchorage – thank you Anchorage, you were wonderful! – a couple came up to me and showed me an absolutely beautiful console table they made. Definitely the best part of the signings is when I get to see pictures and talk to people one on one. And as we talked, the husband told me he had just returned from deployment, and how building furniture for their home had helped him adjust to returning home. He thanked me for putting plans out there that he could use. And I thought, thank me? I need to be thanking you, for protecting our freedom. Thank you, Veterans, for giving us freedom to live and pursue our dreams. And thank you, to those of you serving now, for continuing to make our country great. Happy Veteran’s Day. We certainly have much to be thankful for, don’t we? Are you celebrating Thanksgiving this year? It is definitely my most favorite holiday, with no exception. I love Thanksgiving and look forward to it all year. If you are hosting Thanksgiving, what could be more true tradition than to serve a home cooked meal of thanks on a handmade harvest table? I’m guessing the folks back at the original Thanksgiving dinner made their own table too. We of course have the perfect Farmhouse Table for you. image from Country Living Magazine/photo by Lucas Allen But with Thanksgiving just a couple weeks away, think you don’t have time to build this table? Well, with special thanks to Hillary at The Friendly Home, we’ve made this table easier than every to build. Hillary made this table with pocket holes instead of adding the 2×2 supports as done in the original plan, saving a ton of cuts and holes to be drilled, which saves time and money. Also, by using pocket holes, we hide most all of the screw holes, so a beautiful stained finish like Hillary’s is very easy to do. The easy to do pocket hole plan follows if you want to build this table. And as always, Hillary delivers a beautiful finish, and you can get all the details on how Hillary finished her table here. I love the stain color and will have to try it as well! PS – Don’t have a pocket hole jig? Here’s the original Farmhouse Table Plans. PSS – Have trouble finding 4x4s?

Hi Jamison, great plans. This table was my first ever woodworking project and what fun it was! We needed to replace our glass kitchen table with a wood one with the birth of our son & we loved the design and farmhouse style. I modified the table dimensions to 53″ X 38.5″ to fit our kitchen and I was on my way. Some feedback: We chose soft maple for the wood (in hindsight maybe I should have used something more common & easier to work with for my first woodworking project) & unfortunately, I couldn’t find any lumber yard in the Atlanta area that carried 2X6 boards… there were scrap pieces of various dimensions and quality but nothing that I could use. I ended up ordering the wood from a millworks company, the quality was great but expensive. But I didn’t build the table to save money! I followed the instructions to cut the wood and assembled the base & top. Only deviation from the plans is that I used a random orbital sander for the final sanding. I found that the belt sander was good at smoothing the rough edges, but it was tricky to work with (esp. for a novice like me) and it left an occasional scratch mark. The orbital sander buffed out any marks left over from the belt sander and I thought it worked better for any sanding that needed a finer touch. I used General Finish Antique Walnut gel stain from Woodcraft for the top and Amy Howard Linen paint for the base. I had a lot of trial and error to get the stain right (make sure to use the underside of the table top to practice!), but I found the system that worked best for me was to wipe the applicator pad and the wood with a touch of mineral spirits, apply the stain and wipe off immediately. I needed only one coat because my wife loved the color! I applied 4 coats of poly sealer to the top and 2 to the base and I was done! I’ve attached a pic of the final table. Thanks again for the plans & thanks for getting me started in woodworking… I’ve already got several new project ideas from reading your site! Tony

Once Jeremy and I completed our board and batten project in the living room and dining room, it became pretty obvious that our old table just didn’t fit in anymore. It was a beautiful old table, but had a ton of curvy, flowery details that felt more “grandma chic” than “rustic farmhouse” to me. I said to Jeremy, “If this was my dream dining room, I’d get rid of the grandma table and build a big, beautiful farmhouse-style table with benches.”

Hi there, thanks for these plans. I started working on my table this evening but decided to begin with the table top first. I made a slight change to make it accommodate 3 people per side, but other than that I’m following the amplified plans. One question though. The plans show that there are two end pieces that are 38.5″ long, but that doesn’t seem to be wide enough. The plans show seven 2x6s that are 52″ long, for a total width of 42″…wider than the two end pieces that are 38.5″ long. Am I missing something or have I made a mistake somewhere? As is I’m looking to cut my two end pieces to 42″ to be flush with the seven long boards. Thanks in advance for your reply!
