Tutorial: Build a Farmhouse Dining Table

Step 1:

Construct two of the leg sets out of the 4x4s. The drawings beneath are displaying the front and back side(with pocket holes) of each and every set of legs.

After cutting the 4x4s at five degree on the ends, join two of the legs with each other with two&#2154 aprons at the leading, and braces at the bottom. Use 1 1/two&#8243 pocket holes and 2 1/two&#8243 pocket hole screws.

The bottom brace is 3” above the floor level.

As soon as you get a single constructed, use it as a measure to build the other so they match completely.

Step two:

Attach the two sets of legs together with the longer aprons and center brace with 1 1/two&#8243 pocket holes and two 1/2&#8243 pocket hole screws.

Since our table legs are tapered in a single direction only ( makes it so a lot easier!) these pieces all have square ends. So all 3 2x4s measure the exact same length.

Step 3:

Construct the tabletop with 2&#2154 braces screwed from the underside, and 1 1/two&#8243 pocket holes and two 1/2&#8243 pocket hole screws to attach the outer four pieces (colored orange here) .build-farmhouse-dining-table-apieceofrainbow (8)

Make certain to pre-drill 1 1/two&#8243 pocket holes on the braces to attach the tabletop to the aprons in the next step.

Step four:

Attach tabletop to the base making use of 2 1/2&#8243 pocket hole screws through the 2x4s from the earlier step.


Sand the table in the path of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Eliminate all sanding residue and wipe it clean with damp cloth.
