DIY Modified Modern Farmhouse Table Plans {Lots of them}

Let me preface this post by saying my father-in-law is a perfectionist and very detailed and believes in doing things the right way instead of taking chintzy shortcuts. Instead of me writing a mangled post of mumbo-jumbo I asked him to detail how he made the table. He did and it's 5 pages in a Word document. My husband and I knew this was probably coming! I'm sure this comes as no surprise to those of you that know him!


--If you'd like the plans leave your email in the comment form and I will forward them on.--

I do have several photos documenting the process until Dave and I had to leave to go to our master's class we almost forgot about that day! Oops! That's what lovely "Spring Break Brain" will do to you!


The tabletop boards all laid out to see which way the grain flowed the best!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Planing the boards for a smooth seamless fit!

Photobucket

Wood glue and biscuits so the table top boards fit together tightly!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Jointing the rest of the spots for the biscuits

Photobucket

Clamped together for a secure glue dry!

Photobucket

Cleaning up any glue that oozed out!

Photobucket

The 4 legs!

Photobucket

Sanding the legs with a belt sander for a smooth finish!

Photobucket

Drilling pocket screws!

Photobucket

Like father like son...or not?

Photobucket

Finished tabletop waiting to be conditioned {to reduce blotchiness} and stained!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Already conditioned, now being stained! [Dark Walnut by Miniwax]

Photobucket

After the second coat--but before the poly!
[2 coats of poly on legs/ 3 coats of poly on tabletop]

Photobucket

Remember, full extensive plans available! Just send me your email and I will be happy to forward them on! : )

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

It's truly amazing. I have no room for another table, but I'm thinking of getting rid of one just so I can have this in my house. Is your Father-in-law looking for an adoptable daughter-in-law?

Shannon said...

Seriously, the grain. It makes my heart hurt, it's so pretty.
