Work in Progress

    One of Zach's many summer projects is building me a farmhouse table for 10. (as if moving, school work, lawn, finishing floors, and popcorn ceilings weren't enough)It was my wish from last year that got postponed because we were still in the apartment. I looked online a while back and didn't see much in the way of large dinning room tables that weren't formal. I did find one online however that had instructions on how to build it yourself. The guy who made the original post actually ended up selling it for $2000 and building himself another one. The table is coming along quite nicely. Zach still needs to make the bench and the extensions and then do all the finishing work but I think it is going really well. Hurrah for Zach and a table that can fit guests! I'll show you the finished product when he is all done.

It looks pock marked because you are looking at the underside of the table with the screw holes. 


  1. that's AWESOME!! Love it. Well done Zach.

  2. I LOVE this table! I so want one!

  3. Very cool! It's looking great, Zach.

  4. Great job! Uncle David would be so proud of Zach and his woodworking skills. The same for Aaron, too! He's done some great woodworking himself. The wood is very pretty, and can't wait to see the finished project.
