First, I went all two-tone on this project and attached stained wood trim underneath the table top with a nail gun, so the edge shows a band of white and a band of walnut underneath (walnut stain, not walnut wood).
Then I put the base together with some wood glue (weighted down by books) and then wood screws, attaching it all to a piece of scrap plywood. I’ve been searching for a small pedestal pub style table for a corner in my house and they all seem so expensive. I will share a few pics from my build, and you can see the full set of plans for this table HERE on Ana’s site! To finish it off, I stained the whole thing with Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut. I want one a bit bigger but I am asking my son-in-law to get started on it as soon as possible:),I have been wanting a farmhouse or library table forever and this is perfect.
I have a question how did you put the tabletop on because it doesn’t say on the directions on how to do it.
I have been looking for a heavy outdoor dining table for sometime now without breaking the bank, my husband is going to be thrilled! I built this in roughly 4 hours yesterday not counting the time I had to run back to Lowes and grab some more wood due to rookie mistakes when it came to the 45 degree miter cuts for the cross support beams. Our table is built (my husband’s first time to build anything) and we are nervous to stain it in fear of messing it up. I basically took the dimensions for the table and reduced by half with a few modifications.
I don’t want to go ahead with the rest of the table build only to have the whole project sub-par.
We have 8 children so we have been in the market for a table like this but the cheapest we found was almost $4,000!!!
Staining today and already I can tell that this piece will be the center of attention as we’ll be using it as a side table that will sit behind our couch in the living room.
I’m thinking about mixing your idea with this table but using a circular top and bottom. The only thing that I would add to the plans is to secure the table top with scrap wood pieces screwed up from the bottom.
