DIY Rustic Farmhouse Table - under $140
Hey guys! We've been in our new home for 2 months now and one thing every farmhouse needs is a farmhouse table! The only problem is that these tables are over $1000 in stores. So we decided to build one for under $140 (much more in our budget).
Here is the Materials and Cuts List that we used to make a 6ft table that can seat 6-8 people. We got pretty much everything at our local hardware store.
M a t e r i a l s + C u t s (All materials were bought at HOME DEPOT)
WOOD (DOUGLAS FUR):
2 - 4x4's @ 35"
4 - 4x4 @ 25 and 3/8" (both ends cut at 10 degrees off square long point to short point)
2 - 4x4 @ 28 1/4" (Both ends cut at 10 degrees off square long point to long point. Ends are NOT parallel.
2 - 4x4 @ 58"
2 - 2x4 @ 58"
4 - 2x10 @ 54"
2 - 2x10 @ approx. 37" (cut bread boards to length on ends)
- 2 1/2 " Pocket hole screws
- Miniwax Special Walnut
- Clear Satin Polyurethane
T o o l s
- Miter Saw
- Kreg HD
- Sander (with 120 Grit Sand Paper)
BEFORE STAINING THE TABLE TOP WE "BEAT IT UP" WITH RANDOM TOOLS (hammer, etc.) TO GET THAT RUSTIC LOOK. THEN WE SANDED ALL THE ENTIRE TABLE THOROUGHLY USING A POWER SANDER.
