Build a farmhouse table with turned legs,planter benches for deck,cuprinol silver birch wood stain,wood carving raised letters - For Outdoors

I just finished sewing the bumper for Tucker’s nursery and we are so pleased with the way it turned out. If you like to avoid sewing as much as possible (which I do, because I stink at sewing), window cornices or pelmet boxes are a great way to dress up your windows with just some fabric and a staple gun. One of the big projects we’ve been meaning to tackle is to build some built-in bookcases around the doors in our living room. Well, of course, I'm going to be building (or helping build - my sister wants to build her own furniture too!) furniture for my nieces as well.
I gave the legs an authentic old world finish and will be sharing that tutorial with you next week - it's actually a pretty easy finish to achieve! Also giving a shout-out to the folks at Osborne Wood for providing the legs for this table.
When you go to attach the legs to the aprons, make sure you have the pocket holes pointing upward - I make this mistake all the time - doh! Another option for those of you with a table saw is to use 2x6s for the aprons and then cut a small groove with the tablesaw at the base of the aprons to give the look of multiple boards.


NOTE: You can also add corner cross supports, but we found the table really didn't need it. I think part of this table's charm is the planked top, but to make it more functional, we belt sanded the top flat, and then silicone any gaps to prevent food from sticking in cracks.
Not trying to scare you - this wasn't hard - it's just my sister's got kids between 6 months and 9, and we are preparing this table for real life use and abuse. Now I have to decide whether I want to do the original type farmhouse table, or go with something more like this. It was also the first table that I built with turn-stye legs (except for the table that I used retrofitted bedposts as legs). Just wanted to let you know that Osborne Wood Products (maker of the table legs for this design) just released a matching Bench Leg! My goal was to spend the least amount of money possible to build an apothecary table for our front entry way. I just finished belt sanding my tabletop (made with 2 2x12s and 2 2x10s and 2x8s for the breadboard ends), with the intention of make the table legs from The Handbuilt Home.


I started them over a month ago (then got busy with basement finishing), and two halves are sitting around looking wonky.
The basics is that you start by building the tabletop the exact same way that I build the tabletop on the farmhouse table.
This looks a million times easier and I think the really chippy finish on the legs is selling me.
To attach the legs to the table, I used metal kerf mounted corner brackets (similar to these) and bolts.
