Built this pine dining set for my son’s new house. Modified ‘Anna White’ plans for a farm table & bench. The chairs are modified versions from a number of different authors. It’s all pine stained english chestnut. Table is finished with epoxy & bench/chairs are polyurethane. This was quite a learning experience in wood movement (the enclosed top has separated in a couple places-will probably replace the top with longitudinally oriented planks & a breadboard end

Thanks Ron. Yes I’m familiar with Will Rogers-actually graduated from his namesake HS in Tulsa.
Thanks Eric. Don’t know about ‘nicely done’-learned a lot about hiding woodworking ‘faux pas’!

They look good. But as you pointed out, Anna White
s designs are simple but rarely account for seasonal wood movement.

The table chairs and bench came out great. I like how you epoxied the top. I always wanted to learn that technique. I have a bench in our laundry room that my wife spills detergent on and it eats through the polyurethane.

Welcome to LJ’s. Too bad the project succumbed to seasonal changes. I think the whole set looks great in the pictures and FWIW, we all hide our mistakes. Congrats on your DT3
