Hi Jamison, great plans. This table was my first ever woodworking project and what fun it was! We needed to replace our glass kitchen table with a wood one with the birth of our son & we loved the design and farmhouse style. I modified the table dimensions to 53″ X 38.5″ to fit our kitchen and I was on my way. Some feedback: We chose soft maple for the wood (in hindsight maybe I should have used something more common & easier to work with for my first woodworking project) & unfortunately, I couldn’t find any lumber yard in the Atlanta area that carried 2X6 boards… there were scrap pieces of various dimensions and quality but nothing that I could use. I ended up ordering the wood from a millworks company, the quality was great but expensive. But I didn’t build the table to save money! I followed the instructions to cut the wood and assembled the base & top. Only deviation from the plans is that I used a random orbital sander for the final sanding. I found that the belt sander was good at smoothing the rough edges, but it was tricky to work with (esp. for a novice like me) and it left an occasional scratch mark. The orbital sander buffed out any marks left over from the belt sander and I thought it worked better for any sanding that needed a finer touch. I used General Finish Antique Walnut gel stain from Woodcraft for the top and Amy Howard Linen paint for the base. I had a lot of trial and error to get the stain right (make sure to use the underside of the table top to practice!), but I found the system that worked best for me was to wipe the applicator pad and the wood with a touch of mineral spirits, apply the stain and wipe off immediately. I needed only one coat because my wife loved the color! I applied 4 coats of poly sealer to the top and 2 to the base and I was done! I’ve attached a pic of the final table. Thanks again for the plans & thanks for getting me started in woodworking… I’ve already got several new project ideas from reading your site! Tony

Hello ! I know this forum post is really old, hopefully I’ll get an answer. I just built a table really similar to this one. We attached the table top all together with pocket holes screw (7 2×6). The thing is, like you mentioned, it wasn’t leveled at all! We are totally newbies to woodworking… so we thought maybe if we attached it to our base it would make it better, but really it only made our whole table rocky. Our base is super sturdy and leveled. Our plans didn’t have aprons across for support. I’ve heard of Z shaped clamps for fixing the table top… I would just need some pointers because we are a bit discouraged from having to redo the whole top ! Anyway, thank you for your time!

Hi there, thanks for these plans. I started working on my table this evening but decided to begin with the table top first. I made a slight change to make it accommodate 3 people per side, but other than that I’m following the amplified plans. One question though. The plans show that there are two end pieces that are 38.5″ long, but that doesn’t seem to be wide enough. The plans show seven 2x6s that are 52″ long, for a total width of 42″…wider than the two end pieces that are 38.5″ long. Am I missing something or have I made a mistake somewhere? As is I’m looking to cut my two end pieces to 42″ to be flush with the seven long boards. Thanks in advance for your reply!

I just built a square table using these plans. I couldn’t find any wide table legs so I just got 4x4s. I added 4 brackets to each table leg to make them a little stronger. There are slight imperfections and little gaps around a few edges but overall it looks great. It ended up 60.5 L x 59 W x 31 H, I cut the 2x6x8s in half to save a little money, although it isn’t perfectly square. I used Minwax English Chestnut and Satin Poly with Satin Black Magic Olympic One paint on the base. I just tried to match everything to our chairs and it matched perfectly. I had to make it a little higher than I wanted, but I am 6’8 and I had to get it high enough where my legs would fit under the sides. Thanks for sharing your plans, they worked great!
