DIY FARMHOUSE DINING TABLE {MY FIRST WOODWORKING PROJECT}

Sharing is caring!

Are you looking to have a farmhouse dining table? How about making one by yourself? 

This dining table project you’re about to see should give you an idea about how to go about yours. 

The wood used for making this table was acquired for around $100. 

We’re sharing this project because it’s quite affordable, and anyone can build the table.

Below is a quick summary of how the table can be built.

The Necessary Material for Making a Farm Table

For making a wooden farm table, you will need some materials and accessories. These include:

  • wood
  • wood glue
  • a carpenter’s square
  • a tape measure
  • spray or paint
  • sandpaper for sander
  • a wood screw
  • a screwdriver
  • a jigsaw
  • a clamp
  • and a sander.

Once all of these elements are in place, you can now move on to making your wooden farm table.

The Stages of Construction of the Wooden Farm Table

The table you are going to design must meet your expectations.

So the first thing to do is to get an idea of ​​the ideal dimensions for your seating plan—the steps to follow for the work’s success.

For designing a wooden farm table with four legs, you will obviously need four more or less wide wooden legs.

Choose a large wooden board that will sit on top of the table. Cut the wood with the help of a table saw.

A miter saw will be nice. A table saw, or circular saw will also do. Do a little sanding before painting the board with the color of your choice. Leave to dry.

In the meantime, move on to making the tabletop.

Next, attach the table’s crossbars to the legs using wood screws. You can attach the boards with something like a Kreg pocket holes jig.

You can also make use of the wood glue, but you will need corner clamps to keep the assembly in place.

Layout the top boards so as to decide on the layout. Join the top boards of the table with the pocket holes. Then attach the top onto the table. 

Attach the breadboard ends to the tabletop using pocket holes.

As for the stain finish, you can opt for an aged finish by using the vinegar and old steel wool treatment.

After staining the table, apply three coatings of satin polycrylic. 

Have a super-duper creation!
