Who doesn’t really like a rustic farmhouse dining table?
When I spotted this stunning table created of reclaimed wood from old bridges in the Better Houses and Gardens magazine, it was really like at 1st sight!
I couldn’t wait to fly over right here from A Piece of Rainbow to share with you how effortless it is to create this beautiful dining table ourselves!
How to Create a Farmhouse Dining Table
measuring tape , square, pencil, and security glasses!!!
Kreg Jig, pocket hole screws, and drill
Random Orbital Sander
Finishing stains and sealers of your choice
table legs :
four – 4ࡪ @ 28 1/2” (each ends cut at five degrees off square, ends are parallel)
aprons and braces :
two – 2ࡪ @ 25″ (each ends reduce at 5 degrees off square, extended point to lengthy point, ends are NOT parallel)
two – 2ࡪ @ 29″ (each ends cut at 5 degrees off square, lengthy point to extended point, ends are NOT parallel)
three – twoࡪ @ 64”
7 – 2࡬ @ 67″ (tabletop boards)
2 – two࡬ @ approx 38.5″ (measure and verify to fit)
3 – 2ࡪ @ 27 1/2″
two – twoࡪ @ 24 1/two″
Please follow good practices to build safely and smartly. Perform on a clean level surface, totally free of clutter or debris. Always use straight boards. And keep in mind to check for square following every single step!
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 twoࡪ aprons at the leading, and braces at the bottom. Use 1 1/two″ pocket holes and 2 1/two″ 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.
Attach the two sets of legs together with the longer aprons and center brace with 1 1/two″ pocket holes and two 1/2″ 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.
Construct the tabletop with 2ࡪ braces screwed from the underside, and 1 1/two″ pocket holes and two 1/2″ pocket hole screws to attach the outer four pieces (colored orange here) .
Make certain to pre-drill 1 1/two″ pocket holes on the braces to attach the tabletop to the aprons in the next step.
Attach tabletop to the base making use of 2 1/2″ 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.
Now you can either paint it with your preferred paint colors, or finish it with oil or stain!
Not also difficult, correct?
