We searched and looked for tables since we moved into our house in September, but simply couldn’t find any that we like. After getting a Kreg Jig for Christmas (I strongly recommend you buy one if you want to do any woodworking), I decided to try to make our own table.
Of course, I wanted to take photos and document the process so I could attempt to provide others with a way to build your own DIY counter height kitchen table.
We have a table that is similar in look to yours but have a terrible time with crumbs and stuff getting stuck in the grooves between the planks.
If we do get crumbs stuck in between the planks, we have found that using a toothpick to handpick the crumbs out helps.

And as we talked, the husband told me he had just returned from deployment, and how building furniture for their home had helped him adjust to returning home. Hillary made this table with pocket holes instead of adding the 2x2 supports as done in the original plan, saving a ton of cuts and holes to be drilled, which saves time and money. I decided to make a farmhouse table using your plans 2 weeks back, but decided to adjust the plans for pocket holes. You can construct your own farmhouse table made of planks of solid reclaimed pine, this farmhouse table expands to seat up to 8 people. In a previous design there were extentions for the table to add I believe 15 more inches per end.
Hi Cristina, I haven't had any complaints about sturdiness from anyone else, so I think the plan is fine.
If there is still a wobble, you can corner brace the legs with either metal 90 degree corners or a piece of wood cut at an angle (check out the underside of a table to see how corners are braced). Those plans also include removable leaves on both end that would eliminate the chair problem on the ends. Anyway, those plans also include removable end leaves that would take care of the concerns with end seats. You can use other screws but make sure they are self-drilling.I use any one of a number of my shop clamps to hold things in place they work well.
