We recently moved from our small Minneapolis Bungalow to an apartment in Maryland. It was the prefect opportunity to build the Farmhouse Table I had been admiring on Ana White’s website. When we went to my parents farm in North Dakota for Thanksgiving we spent a couple hours digging through the barn to find old barn wood for the project. The wood then made the 1,400 mile trek to our new apartment in Rockville. Yes, you read that correctly…the table was built in our carpeted apartment! No excuses people…you can make this table in your apartment! If you do not have access to a saw your local big box home improvement store can make the cuts for you. If you go that route Ana White has cut lists with all of the projects she posts on her website.
We both spend a lot of time working on our computers and were in need off a desk that had enough room for both of us. The finished product is a seven foot desk. We absolutely love having a desk we can both comfortably work at!
Tool List: Drill and screws, miter saw, and sanding pad.
Material list: 5 – 2″x10″x8’s, 1 – 2×3, 3″ screws, Kreg Bit, steel wool and vinegar solution, tea stain, Danish Oil This project took me an entire afternoon with power tools. It can still be done without power tools, but will take you longer than an afternoon, since there are a lot of cuts to be made.
