Build your own farmhouse table! The PDF plans include a material cut list, a list of necessary tools & hardware, assembly directions, and dimensions. The overall dimensions of the farmhouse table are 33” W x 72” L x 31 1/2” H.
Helpful tips: Always work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always pre-drill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
First, build the tabletop. Cut all the boards to the specified dimensions and drill each board with the pocket holes indicated in the drawing below. Apply wood glue between each board and fasten with 21/2” Kregg screws. Clamp together while glue drys. Be sure to fasten the end boards last. The centerboards need to have a clean-cut across, so the ends sit flush. You can trim them up with a circular saw.
Cut all the boards to the specified dimensions for the table base. Drill each board with the pocket holes indicated in the drawing below. The pocket holes will be used to fasten the tabletop. Glue together a plain board and a board with pocket holes together to create a thickness of 1 1/2”. Keep the pocket holes facing towards the outside.
*Note: 1×4’s are used since they have a sharp/clean edge, but you can opt to use 2×4’s to prevent the joining of two 1×4’s.
Cut the table legs and assemble the base. Use 2 1/2” Kregg screws to attach each cross member to the leg. Start with the ends of the table base and be sure to in-set the cross member 1/2” from the outside. See step 5 for clarification.
Attach the long cross members to the assembled table base ends. Be sure to in-set the cross member 1/2” and keep the pocket holes facing the inside of the table.
Attach the center support to the table base with 2 1/2” Kregg screws. Make sure the center support is flush with the other boards.
Attach the tabletop. Use 2 1/2” Kregg screws and attach the tabletop by the pocket holes drilled in step 2. Make sure there is a 2” space on all sides.
