Kitchen Nook Farmhouse Table

  • September 21, 2017


A friend needed a table for a kitchen nook they had that was missing a table. The table measures 36"x82". Building it was pretty straightforward and fun but time consuming. This was the first table top I've done with solely glue and biscuits. I used 14 2x6s and some scrap 1xs and a scrap 2x10 for the trim. First I ran all the boards through the table saw to trim the rounded edges off, then ran them through my bench top thickness planner to clean it all up and ensure everything was straight. I cut the top boards to length, cut the biscuit holes, then glued it all up and put the top into clamps. For the base I measured as I went, cut and assembled, the base is all lap joints. The trim was cut with the band saw and sanded with the bench top sander, which saved a ton of time. I filled in all the gaps with wood filler and sanded up to 400 grit. We stained it with Minwax Ebony Stain and finished it with Polycrylic

  • Great attention to detail on that base! Ebony was a great stain choice for this piece.

  • The only negative I see is when you have it in the nook, you can't see all the detail you have in this build. That is one of the most impressive dimensional lumber projects I have seen. Great work.
