I honestly have never been a massive fan of the farmhouse tables. They seem to be a dime a dozen and for some reason I don’t see to many that just catch my eye. So honestly I did not expect this one to be any different but hey it is what the people want lol. So I embarked on making this beast. 80 inches long by 40 inches wide with one matching bench. All with distressed farmhouse style bases. This was my very first attempt to make something like this. I had never done a farmhouse table and this was the first large table that I have done completely alone in my shop. Once the project was finished I looked at it and stared and the more I looked the more I feel in love with it. The more I stared the more I wanted to keep it lol. Im extremely proud of how this came out. What do you guys think. Not only did i design the bases myself not previous plans I also made the floating tenon jig that you can see being used in the video. Let me know what you guys think? If you are intrested to see the process please head over to the website and check out the article here is a link:

Thank you.

Nice work. That top is amazing and I enjoyed seeing your build photos of that router sled and table you have. That is huge.

First rate job – almost thought the bench was integrated into the table as a single assembly.

I’ve been having a love affair with trestle style tables and desks so am glad you found something unexpected to love making.
