Happy Monday guys!! Today marks the day of the first post in our new house, which is kinda weird because I still have posts to share from our old house, but we will just roll with it mmmk?
I’m really really excited about this plan! I’ve been sharing sneak peeks on instagram this past weekend and it’s finally done! Ok, technically it’s not done yet because I still have to take it back out to the garage and put another coat of sealant on it, but it was done enough to photograph for you! But let’s just keep that our little secret!
We are actually staying in my in law’s basement apartment until we figure out where exactly we would like to end up here in Utah and the space here is quite a bit smaller that our last house. So when we put up our dining room table I knew that wasn’t going to work and got to work on some new plans for our new space with the help of BuildSomething.com where you can find tons of other building projects for anything you need!
One of my favorite parts of this table is the metal pipe support beam. It creates a very sturdy base and adds a touch of industrial, which you know I love!
So are you ready to get to work on your new Farmhouse Table??

Table turned out awesome! It looks practical and sturdy enough for kids, and the support beam and decorative legs make it look great too!! A job well done!

I absolutely love this table! I’ve been looking for table plans to build one for our deck (once we build that). This might be it, such a beautiful table. Was it a difficult build? How long did it take you??

OMG I LOVE THIS TABLE! I’m now thinking that maybe I could build this for my back patio and do it in an outdoor setting – I don’t see any reason that wouldn’t? Obsessed!

Where can I get those Chairs!

Wow, what a beautiful piece!

What stain did you use for the table?
Did you ever find out what color stain she used
I would like to know stain also!
My table moves from end to end. It is even on the ground but is loose from one end to the other. Any suggestions? Thank you.
So is mine. It’s a little more wobbly than I expected. I don’t know if I did something wrong or if it just needs more than one brace for the legs.
Table is unsturdy. It moves from end to end. Legs are even on the ground but it is unsturdy. Any suggestions? Thanks.
I would suggest adding a 2×4 brace directly under the table top in the center using pocket holes to attach it to the top piece of the x brace. That should help stabilize it more. Also, how did you attach the table top to the legs? Hope that helps!
What colors stain did you use ?
I first used Minwax Weathered Oak, then applied a 2nd coat of special walnut. It does vary depending on the wood though. I have used this same method and gotten quite different results. But I do love those two colors together!
Ashley Robbins says
First off I’d like to tell you how much I LOVE this table & mine turned out exactly as I hoped it would… aside from moving side to side. I’ve anchored the table top to the leg braces using screws but will attempt adding an additional 2×4 tomorrow

Wow, what a beautiful piece!
Hi! I noticed on the Build Something tutorial that the pipe size isn’t listed. Can you please share that info? Thank you!
This is beautiful! Where did you find those black chairs?
This table is beautiful! Are there any plans/specs for a matching bench? Thank you
Thank you Diane, Unfortunately I do not have any plans for a matching bench, although I might try and get around to that!
Nicole Negron says
Hey Ashley! I was wondering where you got the chairs from? Is there a DIY tutorial you can share? I can’t seem to find them anywhere! We are making the table and would love to have those chairs to go with it! Please let me knoe any infor you have ! Thank you!
Hi Nicole, they are actually from World Market. You can order them here (affiliate link) http://fave.co/28JtPSa. : )
It doesn’t look like the chairs at the end have much leg room. Do you have a problem with that?
Love it! Do you mind telling me the stain you used? It’s a gorgeous color.
Would you mind telling me the color stain you used? It is gorgeous!
Hi! Like a couple others on here I’m dying to know what stain you used? The color is gorgeous! Thanks!
Stain did you use ? My husband just made me this table .
Ian Eads says
Can I have the plans, please?
How did you get 32 inch wide? If you used 4 2x10s that comes to about 37 inches wide. I’m confused. Now I don’t know if the measurements for the X base would be correct?
Hi there! So I actually ripped down both edges of the 2×10 to give me a perfectly square edge vs the rounded edge that most lumber has when purchased from a typical hardware store. I ripped them down so that each board was a total of 8″. You can find all the details in step 4 of the plans on Build Something. Please let me know if you have any other questions! Thanks!!
Oh that makes sense Lol! Thank you ???? if I do want the table to be 37-40 inch wide however, should I make a wider X base? Like a 35 inch one instead of 30 inch? Do I add 5 inches to the angled cuts too? Sorry about all the questions, this is my very first time building anything and I absolutely LOVE your table design ????
Awesome table!! What wood did you use??
Thanks in advance!!
Thanks Kevin! I just used regular Pine from Home Depot!
I don’t have a table saw, will this work if I don’t “rip down” the boards for the tabletop? Or will Home Depot do it if you aske them? Thanks ????
I doubt home depot will rip down those types of boards, they typically on cut plywood for you in that manner. It will still work, your table will just end up a little wider. I actually made this table on the thinner side, so if you don’t rip the boards down you will end up with a more “normal” sized table. : ) But keep in mind you might want to adjust the size of the base if the top is wider. The base needs to be under all board of the table. If anyone leans on the outside boards it will eventually snap off, the kreg joints aren’t design to handle that direction of pressure.
John Folds says
I ripped mine with a circular saw, used a board as a guide. It actually came out really well. The ripping gives it a more finished looked
Susie Barley says
I have a table top that is almost 150 pounds. I have been searching for a very sturdy base and like this one very much. Would it be able to with stand the weight of the table top?
I don’t see why it wouldn’t… I used to stand on my table all the time and it never seemed to budget. Definitely make sure you have the x base extend to the edge of your table top though. And if you build it longer you might need a center support as well. But I will disclose that this is just my opinion and you might want to seek a more mathematical conclusion since I didn’t design it specifically to withstand the weight ; )

Hey, From where you bought that black chairs??? Brown Table and Black Chairs combination look good.
I noticed you said you purchased Pine from Home Depot to build your table, did you buy the 4×4’s from Home Depot as well? Were they treated? My hubby built me a table that I had planned to paint. He bought treated 4×4’s from Home Depot. I’ve changed my mind and plan to stain it now but I’m aftaid how differently the treated/non-treated will look once finished.
Hello, I just found your gorgeous table on Pinterest! I LOVE these chairs too! I think you said you purchased them at World Market however I don’t see this color? Did you paint them? If so, can you share the color please?
Kait Fuhr says
Where did you get the pipe for the center?
Your plans leave out quite a few steps… do you have a finished version?
Alexandria Ferrell says
I love everything about your table! From the chairs to the decor and the colors. I found your chairs but was wondering if you had to paint them or stain them?

I am so impressed with your web post and also like to share this uninstall
This is gorgeous! Do you mind telling how much it cost to build? Am interested in making a few of these for my wedding, but I want to make sure its cost effective. :) Thx!
What are the total dimensions of the table when it’s finished?
