Square Farmhouse Table

5 Materials
1 Day

We recently built this really nice farmhouse style square table.

We started off with four boards that were the same size. We glued them together using wood clamps. You can also choose to screw them together to accomplish the same thing.

We added the first set of the end pieces. They had 45 degree angles cut at the tip of the small board right before it.

Lastly we glued the final two pieces on. These also had 45 degree angles and so they fit together perfectly.

The table base was basically just a handful of 2x4's connected to the table legs with some screws.

We connected the top to the base using wood screws. TIP: we first stained and painted the piece before we connected the two pieces together. It's so much easier to stain and paint them and then connect it.

We used a white chalk paint for the base and legs, and a nice gray stain for the table top.

We put the new table in a common area and added some nice seating. We loved how it turned out!

    Beneath the tabletop between the legs are horizontal wood pieces. Are there instructions for those?

      These are 2x4 just cut to the width of the table. They are for extra added support.

      Home depot and Lowe's carries table legs. And even hobby lobby has.

    Ever thought about purchasing a biscuit cutter or a wood doweling jig?Either,or both would work well on this sort of situation.
