My wife wants one too. I'm all ears.

My picnic table I made was not sufficient enough to qualify as a farm table. frown


You can avoid having ulcers by adapting to the situation: If you fall in the mud puddle, check your pockets for fish. ~Unknown

Open your eyes & look within, are you satisfied with the life you´re living.

No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.

Buy a Kreg Jig.

Something like this? I had a buddy make one pretty similar, want to say it cost him less than $100 in materials to do it. He just downloaded plans and got to work. Painted the base a white color, then a dark stain for the top.

Here's mine. I've built about 10 now for family and friends. It's really cool to see my hand made tables in their homes.

To really do a first class top job, truing the lumber with a good table saw followed by surface planing can have a tremendous effect on fit & quality of the table-top joints. If you are going for super-rustic, you can skip the prep, but fit and unevenness can get quite crude with stock #2 material.

After longitudinal boards are joined for the top, trim each end with a circular saw using a clamped guide before attaching bread-board ends. I like to use a little glue along with the pocket-hole screws - strength is even better, and you can stretch the screw spacing a bit more.

I still have that issue and plan to build it one day.

Just built this coffee table for a client. I'm about to do something similar for her for a kitchen table. Like others have mentioned, Kreg Jig.

This is old cedar flooring from an old store here in town.
