Weathered Farmhouse Table DIY (part 1)

It's been awhile since I've built anything with wood however, I had a visual in mind for a table in my den.  This is what I came up with...

My table measures 30" long x 18" wide by 30" high.  I used 16 ft of 8" pine for the table top and apron and 10' of 2x2 for the legs.  You will need wood screws, glue, drill and bits, clamps (not necessary but helpful), stain, paint, sandpaper and sander, metal scraper and a heat gun.

First, I cut the pine to 6" wide on the table saw.  I need exactly 6 inch wide boards but even though you can buy 6" pine, it actually only is 5 1/4" wide.  Then, I cut three pieces 30" in length for the table top.  For the apron, you will need to cut two boards 16" in length and two boards 26 1/2" in length.  Then, cut those four boards to 4 1/2" wide on the table saw.  Cut four pieces for the legs from the 2 x 2 - 30" in length.

Next, assemble the table top by laying the three boards next to one another wrong side up and Securein place with clamps.  You will need two scrap pieces of pine approximately 2 to 2 1/2" wide by 14"long.  Attach to the back of the table top with wood glue and screws.  

Secure the apron to the bottom of the table top with screws.  Attach the legs with screws.

Even though I didn't plan for this, I added strapping to the front and back of the legs.  I would have added it to the sides as well, however, I didn't have enough I mentioned, I didn't plan to add this detail.  I think it adds a bit of stability to the table and gives it a bulkier appearance.

I filled the screw holes with wood putty then sanded the table with 100-grit then 220-grit sandpaper using a palm sander.  

Next...the finishing!
