DIY Farmhouse Table & Bench

54K Views
Friends of ours were moving into a long narrow condo, and needed a table & benches to fit their narrow space. We wanted to create skinny, yet still functional table with two benches that could slide under the table for storage. For less than $400 and a few weekends work, we were able to make custom, high end furniture that you can easily replicate at home.
Time: 1 Weeks Cost: $400 Difficulty: Moderate

Our table plans were based on the Anna White Farmhouse table plans with a few tweaks. The finished table size is 8 feet long by 28 1/2" wide.

The table is built with 2x10 kiln dried pine for the top and spruce for the legs. The table is easily assembled with pocket holes and glue.

The table legs are notched and held together with dowels. It looks fancy, and is a lot less work than you would think!

The most labor intensive step is doing all the sanding! The more you sand, the better your finish will be in the end.

When the table is not in use, the benches are out of the way.

The table & benches were assembled on site, to be able to fit in the condo's small elevator. They can easily be disassembled to move to a new home.

    Beautiful. Smart to make sure the benches fit completely underneath. That's an important detail.
