We are so happy with the result. Being able to choose each board by hand and join them into such a beautiful table makes it that much more special to us. Take a look at how we designed and built our table and see how easy it is to create exactly what you want instead of paying retail for it.
You Will Need:
- Wood Planks (I used 4 knotty alder planks for the table and two for a matching bench)
- Steel 3-rod Hairpin Leg Kit
- Wood Glue (high strength)
- Water-Based Polycrylic
Step 1: Choose Wood
We went to a lumber yard and chose the boards for our table. You can find wood at home improvement stores but we wanted thick high-quality wood for our tabletop and knew that we could ask for help with the sanding and finishing from the same lumber retailer. We chose 4 knotty alder wood planks that looked great together for our tabletop and then another two for a matching bench project.
