French Farmhouse Table

Ever since we moved into our new place with a formal dining room, I wanted a French farmhouse dining table. Big, heavy & rustic. We brought over a round butcher-block kitchen table with us from our small one bedroom apartment in Pacific Heights, however, it is more of a kitchen table. It’s a great table, but it didn’t even come close to filling the room. At most you can fit 4 people (tightly) at it for dinner.

After doing some searching online to price them out, I quickly got discouraged. The prices were anywhere from $1,200 to $10,000. Most of the time that didn’t even include chairs!

So I got it in my head that I was going to try and build my own. Ok. I have no tools. I have no prior experience in building a birdhouse let alone a table. No tools, no know how, no problem.   There were plenty of websites with videos, designs, step-by-step instructions on how to build a table. Tools. I can just buy what I need along the way.

I have a plan!
