Pedestal table leg plans,plans for building a gun rack,ridgid planer and jointer - For Begninners
And got a little fancy with the legs to really make this table unique and full of character! If you want to make this table for yourself, of course we got you covered with the free plans. Wow - I love the feel of the original farmhouse table, but didn't like the legs as they seemed to be in the way - this is the perfect fix and so beautiful. Brooke wanted to build a table for her sister that was square and fit a smaller dining space, with an X base. You can build this table too - but before we get to the plans, please hop over and check out more photos and building details from Brooke!
If you feel the base of this X isn't stable enough, you can throw a few countersunk screws in on the underside, or even a metal mending plate and screws - it'll be hidden.
Thanks to Ana White and her awesome PLANS, I was able to build two of these 9-foot bad boys for $90 total! I chose one of our favorites, Rust-Oleum Early American, to stain the table and the benches! After letting the pieces dry, I brought them in the house and assembled the seats to the legs!
I can't wait to build the table but don't want to start until I can find plans for matching chairs. Designs and I teamed up on a table project for Brooke's sister, and to share the plans with you!
We have been looking for a smaller table that would be good for 4 people on a regular basis but occasionally fit 6.
I used Oak plywood for top and white wood for legs also for band on plywood pickeled the bot and stained the top..
But my sister is absolutely enthralled with it, and I'm so happy to be able to give her the first "real" table she's had.
I know round tables would be hard to manage on a DIY project, but a hexagon seems doable, although I'm definitely not skilled enough to know if I'm wrong. I'm really proud that I was able to put together such a complicated-looking table in only three hours, and my sister is thrilled that she has such a fancy table to show off!
