Farmhouse Table with Peg and Hole Accents

 Write Review

I wanted a farmhouse table but I needed a WOW factor. I found it when I got some inspiration from an antique cribbage table. You can find the entire tutorial at http://www.iamahomemaker.com/farmhouse-table/

Directions

Follow the steps below to complete this project.

1

Cut legs and aprons

Assemble the base of the table first.

2

Drill Pcoket holes

All 4 aprons need pocket holes to attach to the legs and to attach to the table top at the end of the build.

3

Attach aprons to legs

I use a 1/4 piece of plywood to recess the apron ever so slightly.

4

Attach support beams

I added supports every 12" or so. I also doubled the supports at the ends of the table to create a strong base for the end of the table top and the beginning of the breadboard.

5

Cut Holes for the Stretcher

This step takes patience and caution.

6

Attach Stretcher and Add Peg

I used a spade bit to drill the hole for the peg

7

Cut Space for the Medial Stretcher

Measure carefully so the medial stretcher sits flush with the end stretcher.

8

Attach the Boards for the tabletop

Using a Kreg Jig, drill the pocket holes and attach the tabletop boards together. Then trim off 5 inches on each end of the tabletop and cut the breaboard to the exact width of the table. Drill the pocket holes for the breadboard and attach to the main tabletop.

9

Sand Stain Poly

Sand your table and clean thoroughly. Then stain it to your desired color and polyurethane.
