Wifey decided she wanted a Farm Table, so I figured we would go shopping for one. Little did I know that I would be building it. I got the idea for this table from numerous blogs, sites, youtube etc.

This was an interesting project for me because I had never built a table before, much less a farm table, I learned a great deal from this project. first is that while I liked the Kreg jig joinery that I used to join the table top, I don’t think it was the best method for the table, also that working with dimensional lumber is quite a challenge, and while I saved a couple of bucks in the process, I spent a lot of time processing the lumber, jointing, planing, etc… at the end of the day my wife loves the table and we spend a lot of time around it.

Looks great for a first table.
If you used pocket screws on the top end boards you may want to investigate wood movement before you build another table.

Awesome old farm design and colors. Chairs are looking good too.

Nice dude!!! Being a fairly new woodworker, I can appreciate when someone says processing the construction lumber is time consuming. Keep up the great work and Be safe.
